Mount Worth State Park protects a remnant of the forests that once covered the western Strzelecki Ranges. Tall wet forests of Mountain Ash, Mountain Grey Gum and Blackwood grow on the hills and slopes and tree fers flourish in sheltered gullies.
Walking, picnicking and sightseeing are the most popular activities. The Giant’s Circuit walk follows an old tramline route along Lorkin Creek to the Standing Giant – a huge Mountain Ash seven metres in circumference and probably more than 300 years old. Two lookouts on McDonald’s Track give panoramic views over the Latrobe River valley, the Great Dividing Range and Westernport Bay.
