Coopracambra National Park is a remote section of Victoria that remains a largely undisturbed landscape. The red sandstone gorge of the Genoa River and the surrounding granite peaks form some spectacular scenery. The park is of high conservation value with its undisturbed ecosystems, heritage river, rare flora and fauna and diverse landscape.
Coopracambra National Park is located 500km east of Melbourne and 250km south of Canberra. The park is bound by three major sealed roads – the Monaro Highway to the west, the Imlay Road to the north in New South Wales and the Princes Highway to the south. The WB Line is the main park road, providing access to the cascading Beehive Falls and to the breathtaking views from the helipad at Mealing Hill. Please note that the WB Line has steep grades and is not recommended for 2WD vehicles.
Things to see and do
There are various activities to interest everyone at Coopracambra National Park, from those looking for a relaxing afternoon enjoying the Beehive falls, to others looking for a strenuous hike through the untamed wilderness.
For those looking for a relaxing day trip, enjoy a picnic at Chandlers Creek before taking a walk to the picturesque Beehive Creek Falls. To reach the falls, travel along the WB Line Track from Monaro Highway and follow a short walking track up to the waterfall. Please be aware that beyond this point the road becomes 4WD only.
If you are an experienced hiker, the walk between Mt Denmarsh and Mt Kaye may be of interest to you. This walk requires a high level of fitness and excellent navigational skills. In addition, the wilderness core of the park provides excellent opportunities for extended remote ‘off track’ walks, especially along the Genoa River. We recommend only experienced and well-equipped hikers to undertake walking in rugged and remote areas.
There are no camping or toilet facilities provided in the park, although bush camping is permitted. The nearest campgrounds and facilities are in Cann River and the Croajingolong National Park. There is no drinking water available, therefore please carry your own water into the park.
Dogs and other pets are not permitted in the park.
