Overview

Twenty two kilometers north of Bacchus Marsh, Lerderderg River along with the Werribee River has gouged a 300 metre deep gorge through the sandstone and slate of the Ballarat Plateau on its course through the rolling plains of Bacchus Marsh. The vegetation in the national park ranges from dry open forest to wet fern gullies and, in spring, a cacophony of spring flowers. The best time for walking is summer when the riverbed is dry and numerous swimming holes and sandy beaches can be found. The many walking tracks range from short hikes to more challenging overnight trips.
