Mount Worth State Park

Mount Worth State Park, about 125 km SE of Melbourne, takes in 1040 hectares of natural forest, regenerating native bush and cleared pastures in the western Strzelecki Ranges, south-east of Warragul.

A network of walking tracks radiate from the Moonlight Creek Picnic area. These include the Giant's Circuit 1.8 km, Moonlight Curcuit 8.5 km, Gardiner's Mill Track 1.5 km one way, Maslin's Mill 800 m one way.

In the 1920s, 12 timber mills were operating in the region - all that remains are sawdust heaps and rusting machinery.

I visited the Park on Easter Monday April 13 2009, reaching it via Darnum and the Allambee Estate Rd.

There were spectacular views to the north across pine plantations over the Latrobe Valley to the Baw Baw Ranges.

I explored about 4 km of walking tracks.

Visitor Guides are available at the Information Kiosk at the picnic ground.
