Plenty Gorge Park offers a wide range of natural and cultural experiences only 20 km from Melbourne, where the spectacular gorge sets a backdrop for stunning landscape views and the abundant native wildlife are always on show. Walk the tracks to the beautiful gorge and marvel at the diverse wildlife living within the park.

Shaped by volcanic activity, the Plenty River is a dividing line between two distinct geological types.

The basalt on the west and sedimentary rock on the eastern side generate a wonderful diversity of habitats, making the park an important refuge for both threatened and regionally significant species.

Enjoy a picnic or barbecue in the park with a range of recreation and picnic areas to suit everyone.

There’s plenty of wide-open space for playing games and on-lead dog-walking.

If you have a current Victorian Amateur Fishing Licence, bring your own bait and try your luck at fishing in Blue Lake. As the sun sets, take a moment to admire the pink hues of the cliffs rising above the lake.

If you want to stay a little longer, Nioka Bush Camp is a great place for group camping, with bunkhouse accommodation available.
