|Old bridge over Lyrebird Creek|
|Ferns on Price's Track|
This Creek is a tributory to the Olinda Creek, and winds it way through beautiful fern gullies and tall regrowth forest.
I visited the area on Friday April 9, 2010, on a 3 km hike which started at the gate on Price's Track, at the junction with Silvan Rd.
I followed this track to a junction with Bulldog Track, then descended the unmarked Bridge Track. This took me down into the gully, reaching the old footbridge over the creek.
I returned to home base the same way, about 3 km total.
Some maps show a "Lyrebird Track" off Bridge Track. This was found, next to the creek, but was impassable, being blocked by fallen trees, branches and undergrowth.
The area was intensively logged in the 1870s to mid 1950s - the management roads were originally logging tracks used by bullock wagons to transport the timber to the railhead at the Mt Evelyn siding.
