Tarra-Bulga National Park
Although only 2015 hectares in size, this lush, dense green park is breathtaking. Sixty-metre-tall mountain ash trees soar overhead, and there are 39 species of fern, ancient myrtle beech, and waterfalls. There is no camping, but some beautiful picnic spots (although it is usually damp underfoot), and a few good short walks with the chance to glimpse superb lyrebirds. Some 200 kilometres east of Melbourne, access is via Traralgon or Yarram.
