Tarra Bulga National Park
Tarra-Bulga National Park in South Gippsland is well known for its giant Mountain Ash trees, beautiful fern gullies and ancient myrtle beeches. The park covers 2015 ha of some of the best examples of original cool temperate rainforests of the Strzelecki Ranges.
Tarra-Bulga National Park is popular for picnics, walks, scenic drives and the study of nature.
Roads throughout the area are narrow and winding but offer marvellous scenery with wide views from several points, including Mount Tassie, off the Traralgon-Balook Road, the Blackwarry fire tower and the Grand Ridge Road. The self-guided Fern Gully Nature Walk starts at Bulga picnic ground and includes the famous suspension bridge. Bulga picnic area is a short distance north of the Visitor Centre, off the Grand Ridge Road.
Tarra Valley picnic area is on the Tarra Valley Road about 8 km from the Visitor Centre. From here a 1.5 km walk takes you through rainforest to the lovely Cyathea Falls. Tarra Falls are along the Tarra Valley Road, a kilometre south of the entrance to the picnic ground.
There are toilets and picnic facilities available.
