Photos And Useful Information About Turtons Creek Reserve
Turtons Creek Reserve – This is a secluded area located between Foster and Mirboo North on the Turtons Creek Road. Here you’ll find a delightful little waterfall and a small creek set amongst a spectacular forest of giant Eucalypts, Mountain Ash and Blackwood trees. You’ll also find weeds and blackberries throughout the native bush land. The Turtons Creek Waterfall is only a trickle at most times of the year, but after rains, produces a delightful flow that cascades over the rocks. The Mountain Ash trees tower above the walking tracks with ferns, wattles and wildlife. Even with the weeds in plentiful supply, it is still a pretty area to visit, especially in the warmer months.
Fishing And Camping – There are several camping areas in the reserve but visitors are advised to bring their own water supplies as no facilities are provided. It gets quite wet in winter, but I’ve heard that the fishing is very good with the streams of the southern Strzelecki’s offering an abundance of trout, blackfish and eel (according to the Parks Victoria Website).
What Is The Area Really Like? – Well, as a photographer, I find beauty every where I go. If you don’t mind travelling on some dirt roads and aren’t expecting pristine conditions, this out-of-the-way place, might be just right for you.
