|SIlvan Rd in the gloom!|
It is surrounded by the Dandenong Ranges National Park, with plantations dating back to the 1975.
Many walking tracks pass through the Arboretum, some of them named after the plantation species.
I visited the Arboretum on Wednesday afernoon July 13 2011, 2010.
My excursion included the Woolrich Lookout (with amazing views towards the Victorian Alps and Yarra Ranges), quaintly named Nib Nab Nob Lookout, following the unsealed Silvan Rd through the Arboretum and the Yarra Ranges National Park.
Sadly, the weather was bad, overcast, gloomy, and raining, and some of the photos reflect these dismal conditions.
Most of the non-native trees were sleeping, and will awaken in august, generating a mass of color across the Arboretum.
