On Tuesday afternoon February 24, 2010, I went over to the Warrandyte State Park, 25 km east of Melbourne town.
I left the car at the picnic ground on Gold Memorial Road, adjacent to Anderson Creek. Fording the creek, I proceeded up gated Wild Cat Gully Track, then turned into Wild Cat Link Track.
This took me steadily uphill, reaching Webb Rd.
Then, I went along Dead End Track along the ridge-top adjacent to the old gold-mining area of Fiddlers Gully.
Dead End Track is what its name says - an old gold mining track which ends on the top of the steep cliffs above Anderson Creek!
From there, I returned to the car the same way - total distance was about 3 km..
Fiddlers Gully was once a gold mining area, in the 1850s to 1870s, but little evidence remains, apart from a few mounds of tailings and excavations.
There was an increase in altitude from 68 m at the start, to 104 m at Dead End Track.
