_ Lerderderg State Park is a great place to explore and it is only a short distance out of Melbourne. This is a place i went to paint and Reg took the children hiking though the gorges. Quite large, it comprises of 14,250 hectares stretched out over 20 kilometres between Bacchus Marsh and Blackwood.
It is a part of the Great Dividing Range, the Lerderderg River has cut a 300 metre deep gorge that is worth exploring. Walking is the best way to get to know the park - there are several tracks for a range of walks from short, easy strolls to strenuous overnight hikes for experienced bushwalkers.
* Other activities include camping, swimming, rock-climbing, fishing and scenic driving.
* The river is popular with anglers. Blackfish and Brown Trout are the most commonly caught fish.
Camping is allowed at O'Brien's Crossing and elsewhere, although there are no facilities.
For the latest information on track closures and park access, please see the Parks Victoria website. Be bushfire smart wherever you visit during fire seasons.
