Olinda Forest Hike in early summer

On Thursday November 12, 2009, I went over to the Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, 35 km east of downtown Melbourne.

My 3 km hike started at the gate on Management Road 13, at the junction with Olinda Creek Rd. This took me down to the old rustic bridga over the Olinda Creek.

Then, I proceeded along the unsigned and rarely-used circuit Track which follows the Olinda Creek Gully, which brought me back to my starting point.

Many beautiful blue and yellow wildflowers were in bloom.

This section of the Forest was subject to fuel reduction burning in 2008, as it is in proximity to the Flower Farm, the only remaining market-garden property in the area, dating back to the 1940s.
