Lyrebird Creek Gully,Olinda Forest

On Tuesday August 5, 2008, I hiked a 3 km circuit in the Lybebird Creek Gully, Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges NP, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

My journey started at the Eagle Nest Picnic Ground (reached from Silvan Rd), then along Eagle Nest Rd, Georges Rd, and Hermon's Track.

This is a pretty part of the forest, along former logging tracks of the 1800s. which are now used for fire protection and by walkers.

The route followed the Lyrebird Creek Gully, passing beautiful ferns and tall regrowth forest.There were many screeching cockatoos overhead, disturbed at my intrusion into their territory!

This is one of my favourite walking places in the Park!

Three other walkers were also enjoying this route.

Eagle Nest Picnic Ground was once a farm, up to the 1940s.
