Toohey Forest Park Loop

This is a nice loop of Toohey Forest Park. Beautiful bushland, but not really fond of the paved path. I guess it does support erosion control though. Otherwise, great ecosystems throughout, going from the dry Eucalypt forest, down to the riparian system at lower elevation.

Great native flora and fauna everywhere.
