WARRANDYTE ABOUNDS with opportunities to enjoy natural landscapes and wild animals, birds and reptiles up close.
Although sometimes people would prefer the reptiles to be a little more at arms length!
The natural beauty of our lovely town and its environment is probably the reason a lot of people move to and live here, happily, for a very long time.
It seems fairly obvious, but certainly researchers are in agreement that being connected to and exposed to natural environments has a very positive effect on our mental and physical health, for a whole variety of reasons.
In fact, the research has shown that even just looking at pictures of nature on a regular basis can reduce stress and improve quality of life.

People love being in and capturing their special experiences of nature, and then sharing those experiences with others.
The Warrandyte Nature page is a vehicle for that purpose.
It’s also a great way to find out about parts of Warrandyte you might never have know existed! Get on it.
The Diary has limited space in the print edition, so for the web find attached a bumper gallery of the images we received for this month’s Nature column.
