Olinda Creek Circuit Hike

A relatively unknown 2 km circuit walking trail is the Olinda Creek Track, in the Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, about 30 km from Melbourne town. This signed track starts about 100 metres down from the junction of gated Management Road 13 and the Olinda Creek Rd, and descends to the Olinda Creek through tree ferns. A water flow measurement meter and gauge, the property of Melbourne Water, are located at the Creek The Track is then followed uphill in a circuit, eventually reaching the Olinda Creek Rd, then a short walk alongside the road to the car. This area was heavily logged from the 1880s until timbercutting ceased in the early 1950s. The remains of logging activity (stumps and logs) are visible along the Track. My exploration was on Wednesday afternoon March 24, 2010.
