Leaghur State Park protects some of the most significant Black Box wetland and woodland communities in Victoria. The park is on the Loddon River floodplain in the state's north west. Flooding can occur in winter and spring, replenishing the park with rich, stunning wetlands and vigorous growth. Flooding is essential for the health of Black Box communities.

Pack a picnic or have a barbecue and enjoy a relaxing time with family and friends in the picnic areas near the main entrance and at Lake Meran. Fireplaces are provided. Camping is allowed in both picnic areas.

Go for a walk through the Black Box woodlands and quietly observe Whistling Kites, Brown Falcons, Superb Fairy-wrens and many other birds soaring high above the wooded and wetland areas. Keep an eye out for wallabies or kangaroos grazing on the open plains at dawn and dusk.
