A trip to Beech Forest Victoria

A few days ago a Friend and I went for a two hour drive to Beech Forest, a small town found in the Otway Ranges of Victoria.  Along the way if one goes via the inland route and not the Great Ocean Road one eventually will turn off a drive through a National park. The park is home to a rainforest which has trees like this.

I would love to find a grove of these trees but its unlikely as the geography is all steep slopes and hills with almost no access of the one road.

 

Continuing along the only road one eventually gets to Beech Forest.  One of the first attractions is an old Fordson tractor and if you are not looking it is east to miss.  This time I decided to take a six shot panorama of the tractor, more for the practise than anything else but I did like the result.

=Then its on to the Redwood Forest found a few kilometres along a dirt road.  The trees and area is beautiful and oh so very peaceful.  I tried a vertarama, a vertical panorama, which ended up looking like this.

Finally we went to Erskin Falls, we were really planning to go to the lower Kalimna Falls but traffic on the great ocean road delayed us to much.  Anyway again a panorama or vertarama of the falls.

 

Then it was homeward bound and a much needed sleep.  Hope you like the photos.
