George's Track Hike, Olinda Forest

These photos show the scenery along George's Track, Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges National park, 35 km east of central Melhourne.

My 4 km (return) hike was on Monday afternoon September 13, 2010, starting at the gate at Olinda Creek Rd, opposite Management Road 13.

I followed the Track all the way to Hermon's Track, where it crossed the Lyrebird Creek.

The route passed through some of the best fern gullies in the Forest, a former logging area.

There was an elevation change from 260 m to 301 m. Commotions were coming from the forest canopy, due to Kookaburras and Cockatoos, indignant at my intrusion on to their land!

Leeches are annoying, some were about 4 cm long and have to be removed.

Some colorful red and white Fungi were discovered.

See all of the Photos, including a nice leech!
