Coles Creek Track, Toolangi State Forest




Coles Creek Track is a former logging road, in the Toolangi State Forest, 60 km NE of Melbourne.

It follows the Yea River Valley, reached from the Sylvia Creek Rd, off the Myer's Creek Rd, near the settlement of Toolangi.

I hiked the northern section of this interesting track on April 17, 2008, about 4 km return, from a starting point at the Wirrawilla Rainforest Reserve, on the Sylvia Creek Rd.

There was a change in altitude from 663m to 546m, as the track winds its way through tall forest and fern gullies.

This is an ungated fire management track, but there are fallen branches which would make 2WD awkward!

Controlled logging is being undertaken at the junction of Sylvia Creek Rd and Coles Creek Tk.

  1. I just want to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about your bushwalks and looking at the pictures. I LOVE the beautiful outdoors,especially the areas around mt donna buang / healesville. [before the fires] they were absolutely stunning. The air is so fresh. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you very much for your page, it has given me some new ideas for places to go! I'm not terribly familiar with the mountains you can go to (except around Healesville area) so thankyou for helping me out. Your knowledge is amazing!
