Walk Description

The Tanglefoot Track is undulating up high at about 800m in the mountains north of Healesville. The track winds through magnificent rainforest gullies and mountain ash forests, mainly regrowth from the 1939 bush fires. Also expect to see Blackwood Wattles, Sassafras and Myrtle Beech trees. Some of the Myrtle Beech are over 200 years old having survived the 1939 bush fires.

Tree ferns grow luxuriantly below the canopy, surrounded by a dense layer of ground ferns in the spectacular Wirrawilla Walk winding through cool temperate rainforest in the headwaters of the Sylvia Creek. There are more than 100 different species of birds in the area, including lyrebirds. In the treetops look out for kookaburras and cockatoos, sooty and powerful owls, and you may see wedged-tail eagles in the skies above the treetops.
