Toolangi & Victorian Central Highlands

Toolangi & Victorian Central Highlands

Toolangi means tall trees in Taungurung, a local indigenous dialect. Just 70 minutes from Melbourne, the area features old-growth rainforest and towering Mountain Ash gums, the tallest flowering trees on Earth. The forest is currently being logged by the state owned logging company, Vicforests, and old-growth forests in the highlands are now down to just over 1% of their pre-industrial habitat. Toolangi is also home to the Leadbeater's possum, a critically endangered Aussie icon that's thought to number less than 1500.

  • Spent a couple days in my favourite cool-temperate part of the world, surrounded by giant ferns, towering Mountain Ash gums and sadly, chunks of logged forest #toolangi #fern
