Mount Worth State Park protects a remnant of the forests that once covered the western Strzelecki Ranges. Tall, wet forests of Mountain Ash, Mountain Grey Gum, and Blackwood grow on the hills and slopes, and tree ferns flourish in sheltered gullies, offering a beautiful backdrop for the many walks throughout the park.
If you’re looking for some water-based fun, Yarragon is only a 20-minute drive to Willow Grove and the picturesque Blue Rock Lake. This inland lake boasts Mt Baw Baw as a backdrop and is hugged by the region’ signature rolling emerald green hills. An ideal fishing and boating destination as it’s one of Victoria’s premier fisheries for Australian Bass.

Blue Rock is the perfect place to lay back and relax, or if you’re brave take a dip and awaken the senses.
