Banksia Track - Doongalla Forest

The Banksia Track is a 2 km route in the Doongalla Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, 35 km east of Melbourne.

It runs between the Olinda-Basin unsealed road and the Doongalla Rd, skirting farms for part of the way, and passing through tall forest and fern gullies, with some nice views across the valley.

I did this 4 km return hike on July 2, 2007, as one of a series of exploratory walks in this magnificient forest.

There are two very steep pinches to negotiate, through stones, mud, fallen branches, and bark, and providing excellent training for Himalayan Trekking!
