Olinda Forest winter hike

I visited the Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges NP, on Tuesday afternoon August 3, 2010.

My 3 km circuit hike started at the junction of Olinda Creek Rd and gated George's Track, then along George's Track, into Barge's Track, then Bartlett Track, and on to Olinda Creek rd and back to home base.

Some interesting varieties of colored fungi were discovered, as well as pretty winter wildflowers.

This forest was logged from the 1850s until timber cutting ceased in 1968 when the land was set aside for "recreational use".

Major bushfires ravaged this Forest on many occasions.
