Ferres Walking Trail - Black Snake Range - Bunyip State Park

The Ferres Walking Trail is in the western section of the Black Snake Range, Bunyip State Park, about 60 km east of Melbourne.

It is reached from the Princes Highway, Tynong North Rd, Gembrook-Tonimbuk Rd, Link Rd, to a small car park at the eastern end of gated Silvertop Ridge Track. Follow this Track to a large Water Point - immediately opposite is the signed western access point to the Ferres Walking Trail.

This circuit is about 3 km, through regrowth forest, in an area formerly logged, and follows the Diamond Creek valley easterly back to the Silvertop Ridge Tk.

The Ferres Trail is rarely walked, and care is needed to avoid losing it, due to fallen bark, branches, trees, and leaf litter.

I did this circuit on February 4, 2009.
