Tarra Bulga National Park

Located in the Strzelecki Ranges, one of only four major areas of cool temperate rainforest in the state. The park features lush, moist gullies, giant Mountain Ash trees and beautiful tree ferns.

Tarra-Bulga allows you to escape the heat and explore the cool forest in summer months and looks its best in winter, with leaves glistening and creeks flowing through the gullies. Some visitors are even lucky enough to see the park transformed by a spectacular white blanket of snow.

Giant Mountain Ash and superb pockets of cool temperate rainforest, Myrtle Beech and Sassafras are as rewarding as the grand scenic views in this park, which features waterfalls and a graceful suspension bridge over a fern-filled gully. As you walk along the quiet tracks through the park, you may see or hear a Lyrebird or other native wildlife.


The Rainforest is full of song birds. Keep an eye out for the unique Lyrebird, Pilot Bird, Crimson Rosella and the Yellow Robin. Yellow tailed Black Cockatoos may fly over with their creaking calls, but don’t be fooled - the Lyrebird is a very clever mimic. Quiet walkers might see the shy Lyrebird scratching the forest floor in search of food.


There is a bush walk to suit everyone:
• The Ash Track branches off the Lyrebird Ridge Track and leads from the Visitor’s Centre to the suspension bridge
• Fern Gully Nature Walk is a short 400m self-guided nature walk. It takes you through a lush fern gully and suspension bridge. Start from the Bulga car park
• Lyrebird Ridge Track is a one hour, 2.4km walk (return) and is accessible for people with disabilities. Start from the Visitors Centre
• Scenic Track starts from the suspension bridge and finishes at the Visitors Centre car park, taking visitors through a 300-year old Mountain Ash forest
• Tarra Valley Rainforest Walk starts at the Tarra Valley car park, the 30minute, 1km (return) walk to the Cyathea Falls lets you meander through the rainforest and across small streams
