at Kooyoora State Park
With magnificent views and a rich variety of plants and animals, Kooyoora State Park is an ideal place for picnics, sightseeing, rock climbing, orienteering and nature study. Visit the Melville Caves, huge granite boulders thought to have been once used as a hideout for the bushranger ‘Captain Melville’.
How to get there
Kooyoora State Park is about 220km north-west of Melbourne, just west of the Calder Highway between Inglewood and Wedderburn.
