The Expansion of the Park Over Time

The reservation of Tarra Bulga National Park began as two separate Rainforest parks over 100 years ago, (Bulga Park and the Tarra Valley). Thanks to the foresight of a few enlightened folk these magnificent areas were spared from the almost complete removal of the towering forests that once dominated the Strzelecki Ranges. From tiny beginnings the Park has grown and although much of the area, that has been added to the park was significantly degraded, the park will continue to recover and become even more of a magnificent nature asset in the future. The two parks were first joined in name as Tarra-Bulga National Park in 1986. In 2001 the park boundaries were increased and at last the two sections were physically joined.
