Warrandyte State Park - South Hill goldmining heritage precinct


Monday June 4 2012 was extremely cold, bleak, and very windy, and I went over to  the South Hill area of the Warrandyte State Park, 15 km east of central Melbourne.


This section of the Park is in the goldmining heritage precinct, and the bushland is dotted with old shafts, muilock heaps and loose quartz.


At this time of year, the Fungus community springs to life, and there were many colorful specimens next to the tracks.


My 2 km hike was in misty rain, bleak and cold - this was a circuit starting at the junction of unsealed Webb St and Pigtgail Track, following the latter to Merlin's Track, then around the spur along South Hill Track and back to home base.


There has been extensive fuel reduction burning activity in this area, with blackened stumps everywhere!
