This is a must for all beginner hikers. Close to Melbourne and with wonderful secluded camping.
Little more than an hour’s drive from Melbourne takes you to the state’s richest wildflower habitat. Set in a low range of mountains dissected by rocky gullies, the unusual geology of Brisbane Ranges National Park has preserved plants that have long since vanished from the region, together with a correspondingly diverse bird population and the greatest density of koalas in Victoria.
The Burchell Trail is a great way to see the Brisbane Ranges National Park. Starting from Steiglitz Courthouse, the walk follows orange track markers and uses existing walks, management tracks and public roads. Overnight camps are located at the Old Mill and Little River Bush Camping Grounds.
