The Valley - Olinda Firest

The Olinda Forest is one of my favourite locations, relatively close to the Melbourne CBD, in the Dandenong Ranges National Park.

A special place is the Valley Picnic Ground, reached from Silvan rd and Boundary Rd, from which several hiking tracks may be explored.

I visited the Valley on Friday afternoon November 6, 2009, then followed KC Track, then along Rifle Range Gully Track, and back to the picnic ground, about 3 km in total.

This area is a protected lyrebird habitat, and these shy creatures may occasionally be seen on Rifle Range Gully Track.

After leaving the Valley, I visited the Woolrich Lookout, which overlooks the Forest - this offers wonderful panoramic views across the Yarra Valley towards the Yarra Ranges and beyond.
