Mount Baw Baw - Places to See


Walking in the Park
The park is ideal for summer bushwalks, offering both shorter and more arduous tracks, including Victoria's first long-distance walking track, cut by the Public Works Department in 1906 between Walhalla and Warburton. The highest of the park's granite plateaus is Mount St Phillick, at 1566 metres. Panoramic views and botanical diversity are on offer, including colourful wildflowers, alpine ash, a rare club moss, and two species of fauna only found in this area, the Baw Baw frog and a type of Leadbeater's possum, as well as lyrebirds, echidnas, platypuses, gliders, wallabies, goannas and a variety of birds. Mount Erica was in fact named after the Baw Baw berry, a species of the Erica genus of shrubs. Horse riding and camping are available and both trout fishing and canoeing can be enjoyed on the Thomson River.
