Mulberry Spur Fireline Track, Bunyip State Park

The Mulberry Spur Fireline Track is one of several gated tracks on the south side of the Black Snake Range, Bunyip State Park, 65 km east of Melhourne.

It links the Tonimbuk-Gembrook Rd with Burgess Track, passing through the former logging area.

I explored this interesting track on Tuesday afternoon August 24, 2010, a 3 km return journey, with an elevation change from 137 m to 293 m.

Some late winter wildflowers were in bloom, including banksias.

The track was steep and muddy, with views across the Diamond Creek Valley to the Weatherhead Range.

My approach was from the Monash Freeway, then Tonimbuk Rd, and return to the Freeway via the Tynong North Rd.

Other tracks nearby, ascending to the Ridge, include Steering Wheel Tk, Dog Spike Tk, Log Tk, Jarvis Tk, Horseshoe Tk, Ridge Tk, and Two Scouts Tk. Some of these are being closed off, even though they still appear on maps.
