If you enjoy bushwalking Tanglefoot-Myrtle Gully is an 18km gem, located just over one hour's drive from Melbourne, which can easily be done in a day.
The track begins at Tanglefoot Car Park, off Sylvia Creek Road near Toolangi, and takes you through fern gullies and Mountain Ash Forest. The track is a particularly ideal walk for bird lovers as Lyrebirds are often seen along the track, along with wrens, robins, rosellas, fantails and plenty of other bird species.
Some tips would be to try to avoid walking the track in the wet as it can be very slippery and ensure you follow basic bushwalking safety by carrying plenty of water, snacks, a reliable map and let someone know you will be heading bush for the day.
