Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of Melbourne town, on Tuesday June 22, 2010.
My aim was to explore the bushland in the Wildcat Gully, a former gold mining region in the years 1851 to 1905.
From the car park on Gold Memorial Rd, near the Gold Memorial, I followed Wildcat Gully Track, then on to Wildcat Gully Link Track.
I then scrub-bashed up the hill, meeting Wildcat Gully Link Track again, and continued to the junction with Dead End Track, at the gate at Webb Street.
That was my turnabout point - I returned along Wildcat Gully Link Track, then onto an un-named rocky steep track, which took me down the hillside, to Wildcat Guilly track, then back to the car.
There were many colorful winter fungi!
This hike was about 3 km in total.
