|Directions to venue:|
You can't help but be overwhelmed by the size of the 94 year old Douglas firs, Radiata pine and Sitka spruce that stand tall and proud at Flagstaff Creek. At the same time though you can't help but be disappointed that a part of the walking track is closed due to damage to Flagstaff Creek bridge.
Setting off from the Taieri Plain lookout and crossing over Three Mile Hill Road, the track makes its way through a clearing before entering a forest of Douglas firs. The view up towards the tree tops is immaculate. Unfortunately you can't go further down through the European larch forest, and along Flagstaff Creek through the Japanese cedars forest.
Nevertheless, follow South Road to meet back up with the walking track at a set of steps, where it climbs through a mixed forest of Douglas firs, Radiata pine, European larch and Sitka spruce. Again, the sight of the trees is spectacular. From here it's a short walk through the clearing back to the car park at the lookout.
