Bullengarook: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Lerderderg State Park


Rising in the Great Dividing Range, the Lerderderg River has cut a 300 metre deep gorge through sandstone and slate, almost bisecting the park. The park has a wide variety of vegetation and wildlife and some interesting relics of goldmining.

Lerderderg State Park offers a true bush experience. Walking is the best way to get to know the park - there are several tracks for a range of walks from short, easy strolls to strenuous overnight hikes for experienced bushwalkers.

Long Forest Nature Conservation Reserve


This park provides the opportunity to view Mallee vegetation in close proximity to Melbourne. Plants typical of arid landscapes and small creek escarpments make the reserve a fantastic retreat for bushwalkers and birdwatchers.

Heritage
Today, mallee vegetation is widespread in Victoria's dry north-west, but some thousands of years ago, during a warmer and drier period, it extended much farther south. Subsequent climatic changes favoured other vegetation such as box and stringybark eucalypts and the Long Forest is now the only naturally occurring mallee south of the Great Dividing Range.

The Garden of St Erth is a beautiful historic house and garden not far from Daylesford and Ballarat.

Explore the gardens and discover an extraordinary range of espaliered fruit, heirloom vegetables and drought tolerant flowers.

Thousands of naturalised daffodils carpet the lawns in September, and through the summer months, the herbaceous border features Diggers perennials and grasses. The month of May marks the end of the gardening year with a blaze of autumn-coloured trees and late perennials.

Cocooned in the Wombat State Forest, the bush garden plays host to a variety of native birds, as well as being a place of restful contemplation.

Visit the nursery and ask the knowledgeable staff all of your gardening questions. There is a huge selection of heirloom seeds and plants available for you to take home and add to your own garden.

Relax over coffee in the cafe and stay on for lunch, morning or afternoon tea surrounded in the beauty of the gardens.

The Diggers Club is committed to sustainable gardening and visitors will find inspirational ideas for gardening organically, becoming more self-sufficient and saving precious water while still enjoying nature's bounty.

Holgate Brewhouse Single Speed World Mountain Bike Championships


Australia has won the right to host the 2016 Single Speed mountain bike world championships. This annual race is open to all comers and attracts competitors from around the globe who ride only with one gear.

Many single speed riders are attracted to the simplicity of riding with one gear as an alternative to the complex, expensive and easy to break paraphernalia of geared bikes. Other single speeders love the physical challenge of conquering difficult terrain without mechanical assistance.

The main event will be a cross-country mountain bike race of approximately 40 kilometes in length in Wombat State Forest on Sunday 23rd October. However the race is a small part of the weekend which has the theme of Carni-velo or festival of the bike. Hanging Rock Reserve, just outside of Woodend township, is the focus for the Carni-velo on Saturday with social events, live entertainment and mini races for uni-cycles, kids, Penny Farthings, and cyclocross
