Greater Bendigo National Park

National Parks and Reserves

This park protects some of the highest quality Box-Ironbark forest in north-central Victoria, along with mallee and grassy woodlands.

This is an ideal spot for nature study, birdwatching, bushwalking, picnics, horse riding and camping. The best time to visit is between August and October when colourful wildflowers are abundant.

The 60 kilometre Bendigo Bushland Trail goes through part of the park, and the Great Dividing Trail begins here, linking Bendigo, Castlemaine and Ballarat.

Things to do
– Recreational fossicking is allowed in some areas. Fossickers must hold a current Miners Right.
– The park offers a range of opportunities for walking and mountain biking.
– Scenic driving, cycling and walking – Most roads in the park are unsealed and suitable for car touring and cycling.

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.
