My journey started at Grant's Picnic Ground, then along the Margaret Lester Forest Walk, Coles Ridge Rd, Tregellas Track, Bleakley Track and back to Grant's.
There are interpetative signs and reproductions of photos of the early 1900s along the Margeter Lester Forest Walk, depicting the Dandenongs in the early days.
The Tregellas Track passes the site of the former Tregellas Timber Mill, of which no trace remains.
Ther usual assemblage of parrots, galahs, and cockatoos were hanging out at Grant's Picnic Ground, waiting for the passengers from the next tourist bus to feed them with seeds!
See all of the Photos of my trip.
