Hiking the Xanthorrhoea Tk, Toolangi State Forest

The Xanthorrhoea Tk is in the Paul Range State Forest, part of the large Toolangi State Forest, near the settlement of Chum Creek, 50 km NE of Melbourne.

"Xanthorrhoea" is the botanical name for the beautiful Grass Trees, which proliferate in the Forest.

The Track is a former logging route, about 4 km return, starting at the Chum Creek Rd, 10 km north of the town of Healesville, with a rise in altitude from 291m to 468m.

It winds its way up the Weasel Creek Gully, through splendid forest, with good views down the valley towards Healesville.

Entertainment is provided by the calls of the Black Cockatoos, which reside in this nice forest!

I hiked this interesting track on April 8, 2008, which also took me along the eastern section of the adjacent Weasel Creek Tk.
