Cookson Hill Track- Kinglake National Park

These pictures were taken on April 9, 2011.

They show the scenery and environment along the 2.5 km (return) Cookson Hill Track, Kinglake National Park. 65 km NE of Melbourne and some views in Kinglake town.

This signed track is reached by gates off the Kinglake-St Andrew's Rd.

Approximately 98 per cent of the park, including the office and most visitor facilities, were burnt by the Black Saturday bushfires in February 2009. Rehabilitation work and assessment of fire damage is continuing in the park and areas are being re-opened progressively.

There has been amazing vegetation regrowth in the forests, and rebuilding of homes and infrastructure destroyed in the fires is continuing.
