Culture and heritage

"Taungurung Clans, Traditional Owners of the land on which Cathedral Range State Park now exists, welcome you to our Country. Our ancestors have lived on, and are intrinsically linked to, this land. We openly invite you to share and enjoy this place and to absorb and respect the cultural values of the landscape and all that exists within it." – Taungurung Clans Aboriginal Corporation


The range was declared a State Park in 1979 due to its outstanding landscape features and diverse woodland types. It also protects significant pre and post European historic sites. A visit to Cooks Mill timber mill site and the adjacent nature walk by the pictursque Storm Creek will enhance the interested visitors understanding of this highly accessible park.
