The scenic Hamer Arboretum, Olinda, in spring

On November 5, 2008, I went out to the Hamer Arboretum, in Olinda, adjacent to the Dandenong Ranges National park, 45 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

My 4 km exploration started at the junction of gated Mathias Rd and Silvan Rd, taking me along Mathias Rd, Simmons Avenue, Boundary Rd, and Manna Gum Track.

The famous Arboretum is always very pretty in spring, with plantings dating back to the early 1970s, from all parts of the world.

Manna Gum track is very steep, with a change of altitude from 325m to 485m!
