- Due to a fire in Lerderderg State Park on 31 January 2019, bushwalkers are advised not to enter walking tracks in the vicinity of Mt Blackwood. Walking tracks near the fire are the Lower Chadwick Track and McKenzie Track. Signs are in place to advise visitors that these areas cannot be accessed. Please keep up to date here for future closures in the coming weeks as we undertake rehabilitation works. For the latest bushfire information, visit www.emergency.vic.gov.au at Lerderderg State Park, Tuesday 12 February, 2019
Rising in the Great Dividing Range, the Lerderderg River has cut a 300 metre deep gorge through sandstone and slate, almost bisecting the park. The park has a wide variety of vegetation and wildlife and some interesting relics of goldmining.
Lerderderg State Park offers a true bush experience. Walking is the best way to get to know the park - there are several tracks for a range of walks from short, easy strolls to strenuous overnight hikes for experienced bushwalkers.
