Sight-seeing

Mount Worth State Park protects a remnant of the forests that once covered the western Strzelecki Ranges. Tall, wet forests of Mountain Ash, Mountain Grey Gum and Blackwood grow on the hills and slopes, and tree ferns flourish in sheltered gullies, offering a beautiful backdrop for a number of the walks throughout the park. Birdlife is abundant within the park, with Lyrebirds scratching amongst the leaf litter and the forest canopy providing nesting areas for many birds. In the 1920s, timber mills operated on the slops around Mount Worth, and relics of the timber industry remain in the park.

Getting here

Mount Worth State Park is situated approximately 125 kilometres south east of Melbourne. The park is reached from the Princes Highway at Warragul by following the Warragul – Korumburra Road, Grand Ridge Road and McDonalds Track. Alternatively the park can be accessed from Darnum via the Darnum – Allambee Road and the Allambee Estate Road. Roads are narrow and winding with gravel surfaces.

Things to see and do

Walking, picnicking and sightseeing are the most popular activities at this park. There are a number of walks in this park of varying levels, including the popular Giant's Circuit walk, which follows a timber tramway through Mountain Ash Forest and fern filled gullies. This lovely walk includes the impressive Standing Giant, a huge Mountain Ash with a girth of 14 metres and is probably 300 years old. The Waterfall-Bower Circuit is a fantastic track for the more experienced walker, featuring a small waterfall at the midway point. The grassy flats and tree ferns at Moonlight Creek provide a delightful setting for a picnic.

Facilities

Sheltered picnic tables, fireplaces and toilets are provided at Moonlight Creek.

Dogs

Dogs and other pets are not permitted.
