They show the scenery and countryside on a trip in the Tonimbuk area, 70 km east of Melbourne, in West Gippdland.
My journey was along the Monash Freeway, then on to the Tonimbuk-Gembrook Rd, through the Bunyip State Park, on to the Tynong North-Gembrook Rd, and back to the Monash Freeway.
There was a short hike between Steering Wheel Track and the junction of the Diamond Creek, then a stop to inspect the historical Charcoal Kiln.
There was also a visit to the old aqueduct near the Tonimbuk Rd.
Really excellent views to the Black Snake Range, and across the Park.
A drama on the Tynong North Rd, where a mob of kangas decided to hop along the road, for about 500 m - at least they kept in the left lane! These animals have problems in hopping along sealed roads, as there is no grip for their claws and they keep falling over!
See all of the Photos of my visit!
