National parks & reserves
Get outdoors in the Goldfields. Wander across a landscape teeming with bird life, kangaroos, wallabies and wildflowers, and discover thousands of relics from Victoria's mining era.
After the gold rush
See echoes of the past everywhere you tread in the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park and the Greater Bendigo National Park. Try your hand at trout fishing in the Loddon River, take the family camping or visit the famous Eureka Reef.
Back to nature
Experience what the forests were like before the gold rushes on a walk through Box-Ironbark forests in the Heathcote-Graytown National Park. Visiting in the spring? Be sure to make the trip to the Paddys Ranges State Park to see the breathtaking wildflower displays.
