1 Review on “Olinda Falls and Valley (14km)”

Overall rating
  • Completed most of this track in Dec 2022.
    There is currently a warning sign a the intersection of the KC Track and the Black Hole Track that advises that the track is closed and restricted to Authorised Personnel only due to the 2021 storm damage. It is unclear if the sign is referring to the KC Track (which continues Straight) or the the Back Hole Track (to the Left.) So we doubled back a little way and took the Mathias road to Predator track, then followed Bartlett road to re-join this Hike.
    We did see lots of leaches when we sat down for lunch on the side of the track.
    You could easily make this hike longer or shorter by taking one of the various side tracks although I would recommend a GPS and/or a map and compass.
    Very much enjoyed this hike and recommend it as a great day hike close to Melbourne.
