Wirrawill, Myrtle Gully, Tanglefoot Tracks is a 8.5km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in Toolangi State Forest, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

This Wirrawill, Myrtle Gully, Tanglefoot Tracks hike is a very beautiful hike that takes the Western side of Mount Tanglefoot, and is a shorter version of the Tanglefoot Track plus includes the Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk. This walk is well worth taking your time to admire the scenery on.

Once leaving the carpark take the left track down, soon you will see a left off to Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk. It is certainly worth the diversion to take. Follow the circuit and soon you will return onto the Myrtle Gully Track. This section follows through a long section of beautiful ferns lining the track.

After a bit more than 4km since the start you will come to the junction with the Tanglefoot Track. Take the right and follow that for roughly 3km. Keep an eye out for the track to your right following the track down to join the Quarry Track. Take the right to follow back down to the Wirrawilla Carpark.

About the region

Toolangi State Forest just north of Healesville, offers an immersive environment in Victoria’s tall forest region. The name Toolangi is an Aboriginal word meaning tall trees. The forest is mainly Eucalypt forest that has regrown from the 1939 Victoria Bushfires. Large sections of the forest were also burnt in the 2009 Victorian Bushfires, although there are some pockets of old-growth forest that have not yet been logged or seriously burnt.

Getting there

One option is to head to Healesville, then take Myers Creek Road for nearly 13km. Take the right for Sylvia Creek Road. Follow this for roughly 4km until you see the sign for Wirrawilla Carpark on your right. But ensure you watch out for the signs.


  • You can take this circuit either way, neither direction offers much in the way of advantage over the other.
  • Be prepared for leeches as they can be numerous here. But it does vary.

  1. We did the Wirrawilla walk on 10/11/2018 – unfortunately the bridge to the Myrtle Gully and Tanglefoot loops is currently impassable as it has been removed for repair. As a result the Wirrawilla is the only walk that can be access (at least, without going over the DO NOT ENTER tape/signs).
    Hopefully this won’t take long to finish.
