The Eltham-Yarra Glen Road extends from Main Road, Eltham through Kangaroo Ground and Christmas Hills to the junction of Symons Street, Steels Creek Road and Glenview Road in Yarra Glen. The section of this road from the top of the Big Hill (Christmas Hills) to the bottom of the escarpment was completed in March 1875.
