Photos And Useful Information About Lyrebird Walk at Mirboo North
About The Lyrebird Walking Track – This pretty and moderate one and a half hour bushwalk through native Eucalypt, Fern and Blackwood forests is typical of the South Gippsland region. Trees and shrubs you’ll commonly see include Mountain Gum, Stringybark, Banksia and Heath. The track can be found just a short drive from the Mirboo North township.
About The Native Birdlife – I have seen the odd elusive Lyrebird which this track has aptly been named after, also Black Cockatoos, Kookaburras, Robins, Thornbills, Grey Shrike-Thrush and Crimson Rosellas.
About The Native Australian Wildlife – Animals that inhabit this forest include Wombats, Koalas, Wallabies, Bandicoots, Possums, Echidnas and apparently the Platypus is found here too, though I have yet to see one in the wild.
How To Get To Lyrebird Walk – The Lyrebird Forest Walk is located 3.3km north of Mirboo North and the carpark is best accessed from the right hand side of the Strzelecki Highway. Picnic tables are available.
About The Photographs – These pictures show the Mirboo North – Boolarra Rail Trail, Darlimurla and the forest at Lyrebird Forest Walk as it is regenerating vigorously on top of blackened tree trunks, six months after the bush fires in February 2009. Images also show where the fires damaged park benches, walking tracks and bridges which were rebuilt or replaced by gangs of Parks Victoria workers and local volunteers.
