Brisbane Ranges: Hike Among Victoria’s Wildflower Paradise

The Brisbane Ranges National Park, located just over an hour’s drive west of Melbourne, is a haven for nature lovers. This 7,700-hectare park boasts Victoria’s richest wildflower habitat and is home to the state’s highest density of koalas.

Hikers of all abilities will find something to enjoy here. The park offers a range of walks, bushwalks and hikes, from short family-friendly strolls to challenging multi-day adventures. Explore scenic gorges, rivers, and diverse plant life on established walking tracks that wind throughout the park.

Beyond hiking, the park is a popular destination for scenic drives, picnics, and camping. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon at Stony Creek or Anakie Gorge picnic areas, which offer barbecue facilities, tables, and toilets. Two campgrounds, Boar Gully and Fridays, provide basic amenities for those wanting to extend their stay.

The park’s unique geology, characterised by low mountain ranges dissected by rocky gullies, has created a haven for rare plant life. Over 600 native plant species can be found here, including the Brisbane Ranges Grevillea, which is unique to the area. Keep an eye out for native fauna as you explore, with possibilities including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, possums, and over 170 bird species.
