Nestled in a magical pocket of Gippsland, just 2.5 hours drive southeast of Melbourne, lies the spectacular Grand Strzelecki Track (GST), poised to become one of Victoria's premier hiking, bushwalking and camping adventure destinations.
Over 100 km of track includes both easy and challenging walks that will suit trekkers with varying levels of fitness and experience.
The Grand Strzelecki Track has something for everyone, whatever your level of experience or fitness. Overall it is Class 4 under the Australian Standard which means that some parts are narrow foot track with minimal infrastructure provided,
requiring self-sufficiency, navigation skills and responsibility for your own safety.
The Strzelecki Ranges are unique and provide an enormous wealth of biodiversity and scenic values. The Parks charm visitors with pristine rainforest and tall eucalypt forests second to none and a proliferation of plant and animal life such as the South
Gippsland Koala, which is the only genetically intact remnant of the original population remaining in Victoria.
The Grand Strzelecki Track opens up many natural treasures including endangered ecosystems, stunning views, waterfalls and much more. Wander among enchanting giant tree ferns and across pristine mountain streams in one of Victoria’s last
remaining patches of rainforest.
These walks take in four catchments on both sides of the range, with a corresponding diversity of forest ecosystems and landscapes including the highest point in the range, Mt. Tassie at 720 metres, which offers dramatic views across the Latrobe Valley and the Great Dividing Range to the North and Wilsons Promontory (the southernmost part of the Australian mainland) and Corner Inlet to the south. A 26.4 km section links the National Parks, with a rest area half way providing a place to camp.
