Situated in the northern foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges, this park is small in size but of great value in preserving a remnant of the area's original plant and animal life.

The best was to enjoy Morwell National Park is to walk through it. Fosters Gully Nature Walk provides an excellent introduction to the park.

Things to do
A self-guided nature walk through Fosters Gully provides the visitor with detailed information on the variety of plants and animals found in the park. The walk begins at the Kerry Road picnic area and takes about an hour to complete. Camping is not permitted.

Heritage
Morwell National Park and surrounding area was occupied by the Woollum Woollum Clan who used the area to hunt possums for food and skins. Artefacts from these times have been found in the surrounding areas. Europeans settled here in the 1840s and cleared land for grazing. Remnants of saw mills and mining can be seen today.
