Dargon Homestead Track - Lysterfield Park







The Dargon Track is a fire access route, shared with walkers, in the north-eastern section of the Lysterfield Regional Park, 40 km SE of Melbourne.

The Dargon family were among the early owners of this large area of land, used from the 1860s for cattle grazing and agriculture.

The estate was purchased by the State Government in the 1970s and integrated into the Lysterfield Regional Park, and adjoins the Birdsland Reserve.

There are several shared walking/management tracks in the area, offering excellent views across the Park and towards the Dandenong Ranges.

Very little evidence remains of the original Homestead, excepting rows of trees planted by the original owners. These mature trees border the present-day Dargon Track.

I visited the area on April 24, 2007, on a 5 km circuit walk along the Gully, Dargon, and Granite Tracks.
