Tarra Bulga National Park with its temperate rainforests is a magical part of Victoria. Drive around and enjoy the wonderful views available. According to Parks Victoria Tarra Bulga National Park protects 1,625 hectares of Mountain Ash forest and cool temperate rainforest. On hills and slopes you’ll find Mountain Ash, Messmate and Blackwood trees. In the rainforest there’s Austral Mulberry, Myrtle Beech and Southern Sassafras; all making the most of sheltered gullies. More than 41 species of ferns flourish in the cool moist conditions in Tarra Bulga. A number of birds delight in the forest areas including cockatoos, kookaburras, currawongs and the eastern yellow robin. Lyrebirds also make their home in the park. If you like to spot animals keep your eyes peeled for wombats, possums, platypus and wallabies. Take a picnic and enjoy the serenity. Head to the visitor centre to make use of picnic tables, toilets and fireplaces. Walking tracks of varying lengths will help you explore this wonderful part of Gippsland. To get there take a trip along the Grand Ridge Road south of Warragul, to Mirboo North and then to Tarra Bulga National Park. A more direct route, via the Princes Highway to Traralgon, is about 200km from Melbourne.
