Bunyip State Park
See a green mosaic as you traverse the diverse ecosystems of Bunyip State Park; from heathland swamps to towering mountain ash forests. Explore on foot, horseback, trail bike or in the comfort of your four-wheel drive. Keep an eye out for the southern-emu wren and swamp bush-pea, both rare sights.
Follow the Lawsons Falls Circuit Walk to the only waterfall within Bunyip State Park. The narrow trail meanders through dense bush and verdant fern gullies before emerging at a small clearing with views across to Lawson Falls.
Four-wheel drive and trail bike enthusiasts make your way to the Gentle Annie and Blue Range 4WD and Trail Bike Trails for a thrilling day out. Pitch a tent in the serene setting of Mortimer Camping Area, Nash Creek Campground, Forest Road Campground or the hike-in Freemans Mill Camping Area.
Bunyip State Park is one of the few places in Victoria where our state floral emblem, the Common Heath, and state fauna emblem, the Leadbeater’s Possum, along with our state avian emblem, the Helmeted Honeyeater, can all be found.
