With its lush gullies, giant mountain ash trees and tree ferns, Tarra Bulga National Park is one of only four major areas of cool temperate rainforest in the Victoria. We’ve been in this park earlier this year in winter and were amazed with its beauty, undisturbed fern gully communities, Mountain Ash and Myrtle Beech forests.
There are different ways to get to the park. You can either get there from the north via Princess Highway or, if you travel from Wilsons Promontory, via Tarra Bulga Road (as we did). Bear in mind that Tarra Bulga Road is very twisty narrow roads but worth every kilometer. Be very careful and consider to drive slowly than usual.
Despite of the road condition, this park is certainly a jewel. There are many beautiful walks along tree fern covered tracks, lovely flowing creeks and rivers, waterfalls and towering Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans), blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon), hazel pomaderris (Pomaderris aspera), Myrtle Beech (Nothofagus cunninghamii) and tree ferns (Dicksonia antarctica and Cyathea australis).
