Exploring Mt Donna Buang on a sunny winter 's day
These pix were taken on July 23 2012 at Mt Donna Buang, 80 km east of Melbourne.
They show the scenery and environment along the Mt Donna Buang Tourist Rd, which links the township of Warburton with the Summit, altitude 1280 m, a distance of 26 km.
My visit was to inspect points of interest in support of my forthcoming on-line Heritage Research Project "The Early Sawmills of the Warburton Forests"
Two Lookouts are passed on the ascent, offering spectacular views of the Yarra Valley and Warburton, far below.
These Lookouts are sited near the tops of logging inclines of the 1920s.
