Want access to all the information we have on each walk, including full walk descriptions, and where available a basic map of the walk? Your options are:
From Beaufort head west along the Western Hwy. Approximately 12 km out of town turn right onto Ferntree Gully Road at the 'Mt Buangor State Park' sign. Continue for approximately 6 km to the park entrance. ½ km further on turn right into Ferntree Waterfalls Rd. Continue past Bailes Visitor Centre on your left until to reach the Ferntree Visitor Area.
Note: As at August 2012 many areas of Buangor State Park are still affected by damage caused by fire in 2010 and heavy rainfall and storms in early 2011. Park staff have commenced repairing roads, walking tracks and visitor facilities and this work will continue for some time. Check with Parks Victoria for the latest information prior to visiting this park.
Bushwalking Victoria's advocacy efforts aim to proactively influence decisions that impact on bushwalking and bushwalkers in Victoria, by engaging with key decision makers and land managers such as Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP)to ensure that bushwalking issues and opportunities are understood and considered when policies and decisions are made that impact on the bushwalking community in Victoria.
