Well-known for its wildflowers in springtime, Paddys Ranges State Park is home to 30 types of orchids and more than 140 native bird species like the rare Painted Honeyeaters and Swift Parrots. 

Relics of the goldmining era scattered throughout the park. Visitors can retrace the steps of ‘Paddy’, a miner who reputedly roamed the area in the 1800s.

Bushwalking, camping and picnicking are popular activities in this beautiful Box-Ironbark forest.

How to get there

Paddys Ranges State Park is 170kms north west of Melbourne, just south of Maryborough. Sealed roads surround the park and there are good graded roads to visitor facilities.
