Description: This trip is for those who have completed driver training, but want a little more of a challenge, or for those who want to experience all that Toolangi has to offer.
Potential for mud, bog holes and steep climbs, all with bypass tracks if you want to have a more relaxed drive.
Starting in Healesville, we will travel up Myers Creek Road before turning off into Toolangi State Forest at Monda Road. From there we’ll wind our way through the forest, stopping for lunch at the Dindi Mill Camp.
We’ll then explore more of the forest before making our way to the Black Spur Inn at Narbethong to finish the day with a cold beverage.
Weather: Summer/Autumn weather – potential to be hot and/or raining – check the weather closer to the day. There is a good chance of mud, so pack comfortable shoes you don’t mind getting dirty.
