Exploring Cement Creek

It seems to me that Cement Creek was dealt an injustice when it was first named.
Despite it’s odd name, it really is quite an attractive location and a fine example of lush Victorian forest.
Cement Creek in located at the foot of Mount Donna Buang, near the intersection of Donna Buang Rd and Acheron Way.
On this excursion we gained access to the creek by walking along raised platforms which got us most of the way, then we jumped the handrail into the forest to get to the flowing water. At this location you need to be prepared to get muddy and wet, so it’s advisable to keep a change of clothes in the boot of your car.
The main hazard here is the slippery moss covered rocks. A minor hazard is the hungry leeches.


The Hope of the Green.

Surviving the devastating fires of last summer, fresh new growth springs from the charred base of a tree fern.
In the background, the blackened trunks of trees appear as dark vertical bands, many of them sprouting new lush green clusters of foliage.
