Toolangi

Toolangi
- 4wd.sofcom.com/4WD.html

Toolangi State Forest lies to the north of Toolangi. It is worth dropping into the township itself for refreshments or to visit the information centre (right). Toolangi can be reached in about an hour from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, along the Maroondah Highway and then north through Yarra Glen on the road towards Yea. Turn right at the cross-roads at the crest of the ridge and continue a few km into Toolangi, which was the home of the writer C. J. Dennis.

Mmmm . . . Toolangi Forest holds a maze of dirt roads and four wheel drive tracks, the latter ranging from easy to hard. The obvious access points are Spraggs Road which heads north from just west of Toolangi, and Marginal Road which is signed on the east side of the Yarra Glen - Yea road, about four km south of the Glenburn pub. Conditions of tracks can change rapidly with the weather and with logging activity.

Road such as Marginal Road (above) and Victoria Range Road (right) in good condition (8/'99) offer pleasant drives through the forest.

4WD tracks such as Rocky Track (left) and Victoria Range Track (NB.) are better tackled in company and with a winch or Tirfor ready, although you might not need them. "The Steps" are hard.

A bit of mud is likely after wet weather - 6x6.

Wilhelmina Falls in the Murrindindi Scenic Reserve to the north, a couple of km walk from the car park, are well worth a look, especially after rain.

Recommended Maps: ESMAP for the southern section, and Toolangi - Black Range Forest Map, 1:100,000, Conservation, Forests & Lands.
