Walking the Yan Yean Pipeline

The post for this fortnight is a little different – in the form of a video instead.

A few weeks ago, I walked the length of the Yan Yean Pipeline from Yan Yean Reservoir to the storage reservoirs at Preston.

You can see the video below or at this link here.

It’s my first real attempt at video editing etc. so it’s taken me a while and there’s probably a lot to be improved! But it was a really fun walk to do and I hope to walk more pipelines and aqueducts in the near future.

Thanks Philip. A great walk, sadly so much of the land is now covered with housing estates. Growing up in Watsonia North there was an open aqueduct at the top of the hill which ran in a roughly East West direction linking Bundoora with Eltham. A lot of that trail can still be walked. I recall the aqueduct was lined with clay bricks. It was a great place to explore as a kid before the suburban sprawl made it’s way through Mill Park and beyond.
