The Friends of Tarra-Bulga National Park inc formed in 1994 in response to a specific but very important concern. During 1993 and 1994 many park visitors found to their dismay that the newly-built Visitor Centre was often closed on weekends. “The Friends” were formed to ensure that the Centre was open during peak visitor periods.
Twenty years later, staffing and maintaining the Visitor Centre is still one of the group’s main activities, but we also do plenty more including
- Fauna and flora monitoring e.g. Lyrebird Surveys.
- Working Bees to plant trees or remove weeds.
- Guided walks.
- Guest speakers.
Please consider joining our group and becoming a friend of the park.

Tarra-Bulga National Park is located in Gippsland’s Strzelecki Ranges and is a remnant of the great forests that once covered this part of Victoria. It is around a 30 minute drive from either the Latrobe Valley from the north or from Yarram in the South.
