“This is a short hike through the Dandenong Ranges to the historic Doongalla Homestead site.”— Juliette P
Family Friendly This hike is a reasonable distance with terrain that's not too rough. It would suit older children.
Dacite Track lasts for only a short while before using the Rankin Track to dive down a steep hill to a connection with the Camelia Track.
Camelia Track continues through more of the same forest and descending terrain until reaching one of the highlights of the hike: Doongalla Homestead.
At the site, enjoy a snack in the picnic area while you investigate the remnants of an original bush homestead. When you're ready to continue, find the Zig Zag Track to begin a steady climb through switchbacking terrain to another junction with the Dacite Track and the trail's end into the Kyeema Track.
Traversing rolling terrain yet again, the Kyeema Track follows a leafy, pleasant path to the junction with Trig Track and the final leg of the journey back to the car.
