Sadly this blackwood tree came down a while back. I remember the area before it was even growing. The tree that is almost totally obscured behind it is still there. Blackwoods usually only live to around 50 years or so.
This Lyrebird was hiding from the rain a while back outside the kitchen window.
The O'Shannassy cycling trail shown in this video is right next to the bush camp.
Redwood forest at East Warburton has few visitors at the moment because the bridge is closed at Cement creek. But the bush camp is right next to O'Shannassy aqueduct and you can ride a bike along there to visit the forest.
Yarra river camping at its best. Camp here and walk the 40 metres to the river. No crowds and nice and peaceful.

Mt Little Joe yesterday.

The still waters of the Yarra river. Right next to the bush camp. Ideal for waterplay or fishing in late summer.
