Brisbane Ranges National Park
Little more than an hour’s drive from Melbourne takes you to the state’s richest wildflower habitat. Set in a low range of mountains dissected by rocky gullies, the unusual geology of the Brisbane Ranges National Park has preserved plants that have long since vanished from other parts of the region.
There are a number of options for bushwalking ranging from short walks to three-day walks. This park is also popular for picnicking, scenic drives and camping.
How to get there
Brisbane Ranges National Park is 80kms west of Melbourne via the Western Highway. Turn off at Bacchus Marsh and follow the Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road. Turn off at Glenmore Road to access the northern reaches of the park or at Granite Road to access Anakie and the southern end of the park.
Camping must be booked in advance. Book online for Boar Gully, Fridays or a site for an overnight hike along the Burchell Trail.
