Enfield State Park








The Enfield State Park is a large area of preserved rugged bushland, 137 km SW of Melbourne.

It was the site for extensive gold-mining in the 1850s, and many shafts and mounds remain.
Gold may still be found, and about half the Park has been set aside for fossicking.

We visited the Park on April 22, 2007, where we parked at the Surface Point picnic ground.

We did the main 7 km Circuit Track, through the Firth Gully, past Mt Misery, through Dunn's Gully and the old gold mining area near Surface Point.

The Park has many walking tracks and public fire-access gravel roads. The main junctions are signposted, but some walking tracks need good map reading and navigation skills!
