Tanglefoot Boardwalk, Toolangi State Forest

The newly constructed Tanglefoot Boardwalk was opened for public use in March 2008, deep in the Toolangi State Forest, 50 km east of Melbourne.

It is located about 2 km south of the Sylvia Creek Rd, on the Tanglefoot Walking Track, a 10 km route linking the Monda Track.

The Boardwalk is about 200 m long, passing through a beautiful jungle environment of tall fern trees, rainforest, and moss-covered trees.Modern water tanks, a small covered picnic shelter and seats are provided along the Boardwalk.

The Track passes through gullies and Mountain Ash forests, mainly regrowth from the 1939 fires.Other giant trees nearby are over 200 years old. Reminders of the timber cutting era can still be seen in the giant Mountain Ash stumps alongside the track, many with axe holes where the fellers inserted their standing boards in the logging era up to the early 1900s.

The track winds around the western flank of Mt Tanglefoot, 1005 m high. This mountain can be seen from Melbourne, to the left of Mt St Leonard.

I visited this marvellous Boardwalk on March 23, 2008.
