Hiking on the Granite Track, Lysterfield Park


The Granite Track is located in the western section of the Lysterfield Park, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

Is western end starts at the corner of Lysterfield and Wellington Rd, and winds its way up and around the high point lookout, eventually reaching Wellington Rd opposite the Lysterfield Transfer Station.

There are excellent views across the Monbulk Creek Valley towards the Dandenong Ranges, and Melbourne's skyline is visible on the horizon.

The track gets is name from the large boulders and outrocks on the ridge line.

On Wednesday August 6, 2008, I did the section of the track from Lysterfield Rd, to the Dargon Track crossing, then returned, about 4 km total.

There is a increase in altitude from 146 m to 199 m. Ancient footprints may be seen on an open rock section, which I understand are 200 million years old!
