Hiking the scenic Yarrabubba Track - Bunyip State Park

The Yarrabubba Track is in the western section of the Bunyip State Park, about 60 km east of Melbourne.

It is a gated fire management track - walkers and horses are permitted on it.

I walked the northern section, about 4 km return, of this interesting track on January 7, 2009, starting at the Gembrook-Tonimbuk Rd, just opposite the Mortimer Picnic Ground.

The track ascended from 169 m to the ridge line at 211 m, passing through bushland, mostly regrowth from a series of bushfires.

There are views to the Black Snake Range, but somewhat obscured by trees.

The Track crosses several firelines (firebreaks), and eventually reaches the southern boundary of the Park, at Pooley Rd. That section of the Track will be undertaken in due course as a separate walk.

This section of the Park is not often visited by walkers, and is somewhat remote. A good, up-to-date map is essential!
