Tarra Bulga National Park

Hidden within the Strzelecki Ranges, Tarra Bulga National Park features lush fern-filled gullies, giant Mountain Ash and ancient Myrtle Beech. The park covers some of the best examples of original cool temperate rainforests of the Strzelecki Ranges.

Visitors have long enjoyed strolling along one of the nature walks or picnicking beside a shady fern-lined creek.
Walk to the impressive Corrigan’s Suspension Bridge, which stretches through the rainforest canopy, with spectacular views of the lush fern gully on the forest floor below. Take a photo or look down to the ferns below from one of the viewing platforms along the way.

A haven for plants and wildlife, the cool moist conditions support a diverse understorey of ferns with over 41 species occurring within the park. The canopy of forest provides food and nesting areas for a variety of birds including the Pilotbird, Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo, Eastern Whipbird, Laughing Kookaburra, Crimson Rosella and Currawongs. The understorey composed of tall shrubs and small trees is home to the Eastern Yellow Robin, often seen perching sideways on low branches, eyes intently searching the ground for food.

If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a Lyrebird scratching about amongst the leaf litter looking for insects and grubs. Their clear loud imitations echo through the forest. The park is also home to the Common Wombat, Swamp Wallaby, Greater Glider, Sugar Glider, Brushtailed Possum and Platypus.

 

Facilities within the park include picnic tables, barbeques, toilets and picnic shelters
