Bit of info:
Tarra-Bulga National Park in South Gippsland is well known for its giant Mountain Ash trees, beautiful fern gullies and ancient myrtle beeches. The park covers 1,625 ha of some of the best examples of original cool temperate rainforests. It is 158 km from Melbourne in the Strzelecki Ranges and is home to one of the last remnants of the indigenous eucalyptus forests which once covered the region.
The area was first set aside as Bulga National Park in 1904. It comprised only 20 hectares. In 1909 Tarra Valley National Park was designated nearby. Over the years the two parks were gradually enlarged and then merged under the current name in 1986.

How to get there:
You can get there from the Princes Highway at Traralgon by following the Traralgon Creek Road to Balook. Alternatively, follow the Tarra Valley Road from Yarram. Although the roads throughout the area are narrow and winding they offer magnificent scenery with panoramic views from several points.
Another possible route is the spectacular Grand Ridge Road which is mostly unsealed but well maintained and starts from the Warragul-Korumburra road finishing at Carrajung, North of Yarram. Enjoy incredible views north across the verdant pastures of the Latrobe Valley to Mt Baw Baw and south to the sandy beaches and blue waters of the Bass Coast and Wilsons Promontory.
