Geocache Description:


 

This series of caches is located on the picturesque Lady Talbot Forest Drive, just out of Marysville in Victoria.

This area was affected by the Black Saturday bushfire and evidence of this can be seen along the whole drive, but regrowth along the drive is a testiment to mother nature and the resilents of the bush to regenerate itself.

Named after the wife of Sir Reginald Talbot, Governor of Victoria between 1903 and 1908, Lady Talbot Forest Drive is a round-trip of 46 kilometres and takes about 2 hours if driven at a leisurely pace without stops.
Take the time to stop for a picnic lunch, find a cache and a walk through a precious landscape of old growth myrtle beech forest and waterfalls cascading over huge granite boulders. Tall eucalyptus trees shelter peaceful tree fern gullies and creeks lined with ferns and mosses.

Lady Talbot Forest Drive is an unsealed track, suitable for all conventional vehicles in any weather up to The Beeches. In the wetter months, a 4wd is more suited past The Beeches. Lady Talbot Forest Drive follows a winding path through eucalyptus forest along the Taggerty River. The drive begins a few minutes from Marysville, approximately 500 metres east of the town’s centre on the Marysville-Woods Point Road and continues through the Marysville State Forest and the Yarra Ranges National Park.
