Olinda Creek Walking Track

The seldom visited Olinda Creek Walking Track is a 3 km circuit in the Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges National park, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is reached from gated Management Road 13, off the Olinda Creek Rd, and follows the Olinda Creek Gully to a beautiful fern glade on the banks of the Creek. The return route is via the link track to Olinda Creek Rd, then on a foot-track beside the road back to the car.

Remains of former logging activity of the 1940s era may be seen along the track, which passes through regrowth forest and fern gullies. The area was ravaged by bushfires between 1948 and 1955, and again in 1962.

At the Creek there is a depth measurement gauge.

I explored this interesting Track on Monday afternoon June 1, 2009, the first day of winter - there were many colorful fungi along the route.
