Baw Baw National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Covering a substantial part of the Baw Baw Plateau and sections of the Thomson and Aberfeldy River valleys, Baw Baw National Park offers colourful wildflowers in early summer and open grassy plains with Snow Gum woodlands.

Mount St Gwinear, Mount Erica and the Baw Baw Alpine Village are ideal bases for bushwalking.

The Thomson River downstream of the Thomson Dam offers some of the best white water rafting in Victoria.

In winter, the park is ideal for ski touring and has a variety of marked trails to suit the skills of skiers.

Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria – including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, the Gunaikurnai identify the Baw Baw National Park as their Traditional Country. Further information is available from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria AAV and Native Title Services Victoria.

Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.

Be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe.
