Tree Fern Walking Track - Bunyip State Park




One of the best shorter walks in the western section of the Bunyip State Park would be Fern Tree Track.

This is deep in the Park, in the Black Snake Range, and runs between Nichol Hut Tk and gated Link Rd.


It follows a creek gully, with beautiful green tree ferns, some of which overhang the trail.


The Nicol Hut Walking Track starts at Triangle Rd, just north of the Gembrook-Tonimbuk Rd, and the turnoff for Fern Track is about 1 km further on.


There is space for car parking at Triangle Rd.


Nichol Hut Track was originally a fireline park management track, which continues to Burgess Tk, near the Four Brothers Rock formation.

The area is thick regrowth bushland, heavily logged until the late 1980s. The walking distance was about 4 km. The tracks are well signposted and are shown on Rooftops Gembrook map, and in the Parks Victoria map of the Bunyip State Park.

Tree Fern Track may also be reached from the Mortimer Picnic Ground car park, following gated Triangle Track.


This is one walk which should not be missed!
