Yarra Flats: Upside Down

It was quite difficult to get a clear picture of the Yarra on this walk in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne; either the banks were thick with trees or the river was. It has sometimes been called the Upside Down river, due to its brown colour, this is caused by clay suspension in the water gathered as it flows through the now cleared pasture land in the upper catchments.
