Selby Hill winter walk

Selby Hill is situated on the northern perimeter of the Sherbrooke Section of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, 40 km from the Melbourne CBD, on Grantulla Rd.

Foden's Track descends from a small car park into the forest, reaching gated Neumann's Track.

I explored this interesting section of the Park on June 27, 2008, on a 4 km hike, following Neumann's Track westerly, past Neumann's Paddock, Brendon's Corner, and Wallaby Paddock.

These Paddocks were once farms in the 1900s, and furrows may still be seen in Wallaby Paddock, now the home of a family of Eastern Grey Kangaroos.

Lyrebirds inhabit this part of the forest, but none were seen!

At night, gliders, owls, posssums and other nocturnal creatures appear from their nests.

This track is very popular with walkers.

The area was heavily logged in the early 1900s, then used for farming. The forest is mainly regrowth from the 1939 fires.
