VIC East - Mitchell River National Park

Mitchell River National Park surrounds the spectacular Mitchell River where it passes between high cliffs. There are several gorges, including the Den of Nargun mentioned in Aboriginal Legends. Remnants of temperate rainforest line some of the gorges. The park is 11,900 ha in size and contains some of Gippsland's best forest country.


Mitchell River National Park is 300 km from Melbourne (Melway ref: 508 C9). From the Princes Highway (west of Bairnsdale), approach the park via Lindenow or Fernbank along the Bairnsdale-Dargo Road to Waller Road.
