Mount Lawson State Park

Mount Lawson State Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.

Mount Lawson State Park is a haven of wilderness. The unique environment makes it a vital conservation site, home to rare species of plant and animal life.

The park has much to offer to keen hikers, with a number of short and medium-length walking tracks leading to spectacular lookouts and water features within rocky incised creeks.

In spring, wander among the brilliant displays of native wildflowers that blanket the area. You can find nearly 300 native plant species here, including numerous rare species. On the high slopes of the park, you can stride through open forests of Narrow-leaf Peppermint, Candlebark, Manna Gum, Blue Gum and Brittle Gum. Red Stringybark and Long-leaf box dominate the lower slopes along with Red Box and Broad-leaf Peppermint. The steep, dry, northern slopes of the park contain large areas of Black Cypress-pine and Kurrajong.

While you're there, see if you can spot native animal species including the Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Red-neck and Black Wallaby and Common Wombat. You might even see the Barking Owl, a rare species in Victoria, along with many other species of birds.
