We ventured out Warrandyte way to visit a family member. It's many years since I've been out there, and the roads have changed a bit. We had no real issues getting there but it was just via a different route to the one we used to take when we went out there for Sunday drives when young.
One thing that hasn't changed is the proximity of some of the houses to the forest. Lovely outlook, of course, and great for most of the year, but could be a bit worrisome for a few days each summer?
