Exploring the Olinda Creek and Stewart's Weir
These pix were taken on October 21 2012 in the Olinda Forest, 35 km east of central Melbourne.
They show the environment, scenery and features along a section of the Olinda Creek, on a 2 km hike along Management Track 19, which starts at Olinda Creek Rd.
Decades ago, the Olinda Creek was diverted near the old farmhouse, leading to Stewart's Weir and Emergency Pumping Station on Olinda Creek Rd. The diversion runs through a brick-walled channel - the old creekline can be seen nearby.
