Olinda Forest in earty winter



George's Rd is in the Olinda Section of the Dandenong Ranges NP, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is a gated forest management road, and links Olinda Creek Rd with Hermon's Track, passing through beautiful ferns.

Some sections of this track are hilly, and care is needed during wet weather.

The track is popular with walkers, horseriders and cyclists.

I explored this 4 km (return) track on Tuesay May 12 2009, starting at the Olinda Creek Rd access point.

At this time of year, colorful fungi appear, in many shades of white, pink, orange, yellow and red!

I was hoping to see a puma, but no luck!
