Dont forgot to make time to check out the magnificent Tarra Bulga National Park - 20 minutes drive from Callignee II.

Tarra Bulga National Park is famous for its lush gullies, giant mountain ash trees and tree ferns. Tarra Bulga National Park is one of only four major areas of cool temperate rainforest in the state.

Pack a Picnic under a mountain ash!!
Have lunch at the Tarra Bulga Picnic area, just off the Grand Ridge Road, or the Tarra Valley picnic area off Tarra Valley Road. Both spots are set amongst the giant mountain ash and shady fronds of tree ferns and offer tables, fireplaces, toilets and picnic shelters.

Bushwalks, waterfalls and rivers
Try out one of the numerous walking tracks that emanate from the picnic areas. Meander through the forest, head south down to Tarra Falls, or take the Fern Gully Nature Walk, which includes magnificent views along the famous suspension bridge.


The rainforest is a haven for plants and wildlife. Discover a wide variety of birds including the pilotbird, yellow tailed black cockatoo, eastern whipbird, and currawongs. Visit in the evening when the forest comes to life as possums, owls and bats emerge to feed. If you're lucky, you may see a lyrebird scratching the forest floor looking for food or catch a glimpse of some of the other inhabitants like wombats, swamp wallabies, gliders and platypuses.
