The beautiful Cornus Track, Olinda Arboretum

On Thursday afternoon June 4 2009 I visited the Olinda Section of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, 40 km east of the Melhourne CBD.

My excursion was a 4 km return hike along Mathias Rd, Golf Course Track, and Cornus Track, adjacent to the National Rhododendrum Gardens and Arboretum.

There were magnificent displays of brilliant red Cornus trees (Red Dogwood) along Cornus Track.

From Golf Course Track, there were nice views to the east, towards the Yarra Ranges, Mt Donna Buang, Mt Victoria, and Mt St Leonard.

My hike started at the junction of Falls Rd and gated Mathias Rd, and passed through tall forest, fern gullies, and next to a creek.

A family with young children on Mathias Rd were quite excited, as they had just seen a lyrebird!
