- Located 93 kilometres west of Melbourne and rising majestically above the sweeping Werribee Plains, these ranges are part of a geological fault line. Hikers and day-trippers wander at will through untamed mountain forests of stringybark, ironbark and box, and descend the many spectacular gorges and valleys that are now home to grey kangaroos, koalas and echidnas. In spring the mountainsides are carpeted with over 400 species of wildflower. The park is best accessed via Anakie, Meredith, or Ballan. Barbecue, picnic and camping facilities are available.
