Exploring Tonimbuk - Bunyip State Park

These pix were taken on June 20, 2011 in the Bunyip State Park and adjacent forest, 65 km east of Melbourne.

They show the scenery and environment on a circuit route which took me from the Prince's Freeway through Tynong North, then to the tiny settlement of Tonimbuk and back to the Freeway.

The rusting remains of an old charcoal kiln were inspected off Tonimbuk Rd, and the nearby disused Aqueduct was explored.

This open aqueduct once carried water into Gippsland farms fom the Bunyip Weir, high up on the slopes of the Blue Range, but access is prohibited, being controlled by Melbourne Water.

There were good views of the various Ranges which comprise the Bunyip State Park.

There was a stop at the bridge where the Diamond Creek crosses the Tonimbuk Rd.

Bunyips are very shy creatures, but one was seen approaching the Tonimbuk Rd!
