Heathcote Attractions
Heathcote-Graytown National Park
The Heathcote-Graytown National Park was proclaimed with the passing of the Box-Ironbark Bill on 30 October, 2002. Covering 12 833 hectares, it is located in central Victoria just over an hour from Melbourne. The park encompasses much of the southern section of the extensive Rushworth-Heathcote State Forest, from the McIvor Range and Mt. Ida near Heathcote to Mt Black, Spring Creek and Graytown. It includes some of the most significant environmental, cultural and recreational values in the largest remaining Box-Ironbark forest in Victoria. It supports sixteen threatened species including the crimson-spider orchid, squirrel glider and swift parrot. Home to a concentration of large old tree sites and fauna refuges, Heathcote-Graytown National Park also contains significant Aboriginal cultural sites and places.
