Summary

Warburton is a town in Victoria, Australia, 72 km east from Melbourne’s central business district. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Yarra Ranges. At the 2006 Census, Warburton had a population of 2288.

The name ???Warburton??? has been shared between two townships over the years. The mining town of ???Yankee Jims Creek??? was located on the gold-bearing slopes of Mount Little Joe, and was renamed ???Warburton??? after the mining warden of the district, Charles Warburton Carr. Gold depletion caused a declining population in the 1880s, so the town was renamed ???Old Warburton??? and the town of ???Upper Warburton??? on the banks on the Yarra River was renamed ???Warburton???.

The Post Office opened around 1884 though two earlier offices named Warburton were renamed as Launching Place and Hoddle's Creek.

Warburton area is a tourist destination, with picturesque mountain views of the surrounding hills. The Yarra river meanders through the township and is lined with walking tracks and beautiful picnic spots. The township is 20 minutes drive from Mount Donna Buang, which is snow covered in the winter. Restaurants and caf??s, river walks, snow-play, and wineries make up the local attractions.

Warburton was connected to Lilydale by a Victorian Railways branch line which closed in 1965. The railway path is now used for the Warburton Trail, a rail trail used by pedestrians, cyclists, and horse-riders.

East of Warburton is a large water catchment area called Upper Yarra Dam designed to supply Melbourne with the required amount of water sourced from the Thomson catchment area.

Together with its neighbouring township Millgrove, Warburton has an Australian Rules football team (Warburton Millgrove) competing in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League.

Golfers play at the course of the Warburton Golf Club on Dammans Road.
