St Gwinear Day Visitor Area (Baw Baw National Park)


St Gwinear Day Visitor Area (Baw Baw National Park)

Nestled high on the Baw Baw Plateau, the St Gwinear Day Visitor Area is your launching pad into the family-friendly slopes of Mount St Gwinear. Zoom down toboggan runs or explore snow gum-landscapes along cross-country trails. Visitors are advised to carry snow chains in the declared winter season. Toboggan hire regularly operates from the St Gwinear carpark during the snow season. Check winter snow conditions on and when the snow melts and wildflowers bloom, switch the skis for hiking boots.
