Giraween - Place of Flowers

The Giraween Picnic Reserve is a relatively unknown location high up in the Kinglake National Park.

("Giraween" is a translation from the Aboriginal words meaning "Place of Flowers") .

It is on the former Old Kinglake Rd, which is now a shared fire access, horse, and walking track, following its closure to public vehicles in the early 2000s.

Unfortunately, the Reserve has become neglected and is somewhat overgrown. It was once a rest area on the coach track between the settlements of Steele's Creek and Kinglake.

Access is via Yarra Glen, Steele's Creek, and a gate at the end of the public section of the Old Kinglake Rd.

The Track passes through dense forest, on its ascent to Giraween, along the Dry Creek Gully, with views of Mt Jerusalem to the east.

Giraween is about 2 km from the southern access gate.

I did this trip on June 8, 2007.
