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 is located 80kms west of Melbourne, take the Western Highway to Bacchus Marsh or the Princes Highway toward Geelong.
Thompsons Road and Reids Road provide the best access to the northern end of the National Park while the Geelong Ballan Road provides the best access to 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.
