Errinundra National Park is one of East Gippsland’s most outstanding natural areas, offering tranquil walks and scenic drives. It preserves the largest remaining stand of cool temperate rainforest in Victoria, as well as ancient eucalypt forests. The park now extends from Mt Ellery across the Errinundra Plateau, rising 1000 metres above sea level, to the Coast Range. The majority of the park is accessible only in the drier months, as rain and snow can make the unsealed roads impassable.
Errinundra National Park is 373km east of Melbourne via the Princes Highway. Approaching from the West, travel along Bonang Road, turn right onto Gap Road and right again onto Gunmark Road. From the South, travel 54 km from Orbost along Princes Highway, then turn onto Combienbar Road and drive through Club Terrace to Errinundra Road, which climbs onto the Plateau.
Things to see and do
Errinundra National Park is a wonderful location to enjoy rainforest walks, peaceful picnics and scenic drives.
Rainforest and mountain walks
There are many bushwalking tracks which are ideal for short and medium length walks to suit every ability. To best enjoy the cool temperate rainforest, follow the boardwalk at Errinundra Saddle, which features an interesting history of the park. The Mt Ellery Track offers spectacular views and a close look at the granite tors. Visitors interested in viewing the ancient Mountain Plum Pines, can easily access them from Goonmirks Rocks Road.
Those wanting to enjoy a scenic drive can follow The Baldwin Spencer Trail which passes through the park, closely following the route of scientist and explorer William Baldwin Spencer.
