Summary

This Wirrawill, Myrtle Gully, Tanglefoot Tracks hike is a very beautiful hike that takes the Western side of Mt 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.

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.

Tips

  • 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.
