Moderate track
Starting from Ferntree Camping Ground, Raglan VIC, this walk takes you on a circuit through the eucalypt woodland of Mount Cole State Forest, crossing the Middle Creek twice. Filled with wildlife such as deers and wallabies, the forest is also home to more countless bird species. Said woodland consists of Manna Gum, Blue Gum and Messmate Stringybark trees. Once wandering through these trees were the people of the Beeripmo Balug clan of the Djab Wurrung tribe(Aboriginal). Many landmarks, tracks and walks were named after them, such as the Beeripmo Walk. You’ll also visit the Fern Tree Falls, which is a lovely waterfall amidst ferns and moss. Keep in mind that phone reception can be minimal to non-existent, so prepare accordingly. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
