Olinda Forest Hike

These photos were taken on Monday afternoon, December 3, 2011, in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, Olinda Forest, 40 km east of central Melbourne.

They show the scenery and environment along George's Track, a gated fire management road linking the Olinda Creek Rd and Hermon's Track.

This 4 km (return) hike is one of the very best in the Forest, with beautiful ferns, the Lyrebird Creek, many ant burrows, and cockatoos screeching in the canopy overhead!

See all of the Photos, which includes an historical engraving dated at 1873, showing a bullock train carting logs in the forest.

The Olinda section of Dandenong Ranges National Park, covering 790 hectares between Olinda, Kalorama and the catchment of Silvan Reservoir, once formed part of the Dandenong State Forest Reserve.
