8 km circuit walk in Brisbane Ranges National Park
Yesterday I went to Brisbane Ranges National Park for day walking. The weather was great and the park isn't far away from Melbourne. When I look for places to go bushwalking I sometimes look at the map of all parks on the Parks Victoria website and display all within 100km of Melbourne. Plenty of parks to check out.
Getting there is easy with car GPS, but once I was there it was a similar feeling to when I went bushwalking in Toolangi State forest last year. There are signs to mark the park boundaries, but from the main road there are no signs for how to get to the picnic areas, or the start of the walking tracks. You need to take a guess and follow one of several gravel roads off the main road, hoping it will lead to the right place.
Fortunately I went the right way and soon arrived at Stony Creek Picnic Area where I parked my car. From there I went to walk Ted Erry Nature Circuit, an 8km circuit walk.
It turned out to be a great afternoon walk, not too short and not too long. Walking was fairly easy, a few steep rocky sections, but nothing too serious. A few times I found the signage confusing, and once I even took the wrong turn because a track marker had fallen down.
