Morwell National Park
Photographs And Information about Morwell National Park
How To Get To Morwell National Park – Found between Boolarra, Yinnar, Jeeralang Junction and Churchill in the Latrobe Valley, Morwell National Park is situated 16km south of Morwell and can be reached most easily via Churchill or Yinnar. The park is a pleasant two-hour drive from Melbourne. Camping is not permitted and like our other National Parks and Reserves, motorbikes, dogs, horses and other pets are not allowed in order to protect these beautiful environments, native wildlife and birds.
Things To See And Do – Morwell National Park provides good facilities for picnics and barbeques, bird watching and bushwalking. The best way to see what’s around is to walk through either Fosters Gully Nature Walk or Stringybark Ridge. A self-guided nature walk through Fosters Gully provides the visitor with detailed information on the variety of plants and animals found in the park. Alternatively, the Kerry Road Picnic Area is an ideal place to have a peaceful picnic in a quiet bushland setting where there are picnic tables, gas barbecues, toilets and an information centre.

Most of the bushland here escaped the bushfires in February 2009 which ravaged many nearby areas, but we have also included a few photos of the natural scenery and regenerating trees taken after the fires from the hills overlooking Churchill with a couple more attractive shots taken from the banks of the Morwell River too. Enjoy!
