The Grand Strzelecki Track Park to Park is a 40km, grade 4 one-way hike located in the Morwell and Tarra Bulga National Parks, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 2-3 days to complete. The advertised length of this hike is actually 26.5km however, the length detailed in this overview includes the additional 9.5km to reach accommodation facilities.
Start this 2-3 day hike from either Tarra Bulga National Park or Morwell National Park and make your way along the Grand Strzelecki Track stopping overnight at the Jumbuk Rest Area. Though well marked, some areas have minimal infrastructure, so a level of fitness and experience is required.
While many parts of the Grand Strzelecki Track are graded easy to medium, other parts are challenging and require a degree of fitness and experience. Overall, the Track is Class 4 under the Australian Standard which means that some parts are narrow foot track with minimal infrastructure provided, requiring self-sufficiency, navigation skills (although it is generally well marked) and responsibility for your own safety.
Hidden within the Strzelecki Ranges, Tarra-Bulga National Park features lush fern-filled gullies, giant Mountain Ash and ancient Myrtle Beech. Visitors have long enjoyed strolling along one of the nature walks or picnicking beside a shady fern-lined creek.
Tarra Bulga National Park is situated approximately 200 kilometres east of Melbourne. The park is reached from the Princes Highway at Traralgon by following Traralgon Creek Road to Balook. Alternatively the park can be reached from Yarram via the Tarra Valley Road or Bulga Park Road. Roads throughout the area are narrow and winding but offer marvelous scenery with panoramic views from several points, including Mount Tassie.
The facilities at the Jumbuk Rest Area are now completed and the area is ready for use as an overnight stop.
Please note there is a no campfire policy on the Grand Strzelecki track at all times of the year.
Anyone planning an extended walk should be well prepared with walking maps. The free downloadable map is suitable for route planning only, NOT FOR NAVIGATION. You can purchase maps through the Grand Strzelecki Track website or from the Tarra-Bulga Visitor Centre at Balook (open weekends, school holidays and public holidays 10am-4pm), Tarra-Bulga Guest House, Tarra Valley Caravan Park or tourist information centres in Traralgon and Yarram
