Holey Plains State Park covers an area of 10,638 hectares of mostly Banksia and Eucalypt open-forest and woodlands growing in a series of low sandy ridges. Proclaimed in 1977, the park protects an extremely high diversity of native flora and abundant wildlife, while providing for bushwalking, picnicking, camping and other activities.
Explore the park on foot on a number of different walks. Many of the tracks off Rosedale-Stradbroke Road provide easy walks and are particularly beautiful in spring when wildflowers are in bloom.
Camping areas and toilets are provided at Holey Hill and Harrier Swamp. Camping is not permitted at Merriman Creek or Clear Water Lake picnic areas.
How to get there
The park is located south of the Princes Highway in Gippsland, between Rosedale and Sale. The main access is from Rosedale, via the Willung Rosedale Road, then Rosedale-Stradbroke Road. A network of sandy roads and tracks provides access within the park. Visitors should note that pine plantations in the area are private property.
