The Walk in Detail

A circular walk in Toolangi State Forest through towering Mountain Ash, Myrtle Beech and Treeferns and the beautiful Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk.  Wirrawilla is Koori for green
trees. It reflects the luxuriance of the surrounding plants, like the majestic moss and
fern covered Myrtle Beech trees towering overhead. The walk is short and easy (20
minutes), with rest stops and wheelchair access.

From the Monda Road (Track) parking area the Tanglefoot Track goes north, dropping steadily through mountain ash, tree ferns and silver wattles towards Sylvia Creek.  From here the track continues up to the junction with the track from Tanglefoot Car Park.

Turn left at the junction, which is 8 km north of Monda Track, onto Myrtle Gully Track, walking initially west then south down through rainforest to the Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk.

After a detour through this cool damp glade of ferns and beech myrtle the track leads south upwards towards Monda Track along the old Quarry Road.  On reaching Monda Road turn left to reach the cars.

Note:  The Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk is short and easy (20 minutes), with rest stops and wheelchair access.
