Despite the threat of rain we had a pleasant walk following the Wildflower Track designated on the newly erected signs for the mountain bike trails near the corner of Forest Rd and Great Ocean Rd.

We made a good list of about 70 plants – few flowering but the massed Dusty Miller was impressive.

Everything looked fresh after the rain.

We saw very little evidence of Phytophora cinamomi on the tracks walked. We identified the Anglesea Grey-gum Eucalyptus litoralis, and discovered a lovely old Brown Stringybark Eucalyptus baxteri.

This is a very pretty area to walk in and it will be beautiful to walk in spring.
