A Hike akong the scenic Dam Rd, Olinda

Dam Rd is a gated management track in Olinda, Dandenong Ranges National Park, adjacent to the Hamer Arboretum, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It starts at the Woolrich Lookout on Chalet Rd, and winds its way around the perimeter of the Arboretum, passing a large fire management dam.

The views are excellent towards the Yarra Ranges.

Near the dam is a short track leading to a disused pumping station.

The dam is fed from run-off from the forest above.I explored this interesting area on December 11, 2008 - Dam Rd is about 2.5 km reurn from the Woolrich Lookout car-park.
