Rankin's Track - Bunyip State Park - old sandpits

Gate to Rankin's Track

Former sandpits

Blue Range

Black Snake Creek Rd - creek crossing
These pix were taken on Saturday June 4 2011 in the Bunyip State Park, 65 km east of Melbourne.

They show the scenery and environment along Black Sbake Creek Rd and Rankin's Track.

Many old sandpits are visible, which were used for gravel extraxction many years ago.

Rankin's Track leads off Black Snake Creek Rd, near Ash Landing Rd, and ascends to the ridge line on Black Snake Range.

Black Snake Creek Road is popular with trail bike riders, but care is needed in negotiating some rough sections, creek crossings, and potholes.

There are good views north to the Blue Range, through regrowth forest. The area was heavily logged in former years, and the remains of old sawmills are hidden in the bush.
