Expolring Steel's Creek Valley

The Steel's Creek Valley is located about 50 km NE of Melbourne, bordering the Kinglake National Park.

It is nestled between Mt Slide, Mt Jerusalem, and the Pinnacles, with the settlement of Steel's Creek nearby.
There are several vineyards in the region.

A large tract of the valley, bordering Brock's Spur, was formerly used for general farming, now mostly abandoned.

A 4 km gated track, known as Hargreaves Track, with walker access permitted, extends east-west across the valley, linking the Melba Highway and Steel's Creek Rd.

On February 26 2008 I explored the eastern section of Hargreaves Track, visiting the Old Homestead site nearby,at the base of Mt Slide.

The views were excellent cross the Valley, and further afield over the Yarra Valley and to the Kinglake Ranges.
