Cobboboonee National Park and the adjoining forest park showcase lowland forest and heathland on the doorstep of Portland and Heywood in far southwest Victoria.

Explore the park by horseback on the Great Cobboboonee Horse trail, extending along 60 kilometres of forest roads. There are also a variety of walking tracks catering for all fitness levels. The spectacular 250 kilometre Great South West Walk treks through the park and continues on through several others. There are some ‘step on step off' hikes allowing for shorter or longer overnight combinations.
