Tynong: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Bunyip State Park

See a mosiac of green from heathland on river plains to Mountain Ash forest covering steep slopes. Whatever recreational pursuit you enjoy, Bunyip State Park provides opportunities for all.
The legend of the bunyip

Beware of the Bunyip, a dark furry animal with a round face, small ears and fiery eyes that glow in the dark.

According to the Aboriginal people, the Bunyip or "Buneep" (as spelt on early maps which show the river, first cattle run and township) is a spirit that punishes bad people.

Local Aboriginal people believed the Bunyip lived in the swamps of the Bunyip River, and therefore avoided the area. Many early settlers, believing this story, never pitched their tents near a 'Bunyip hole'. People were also careful not to make ripples when collecting water. This upset the Bunyip.

Before you go
Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.

Be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe.

Ash Wednesday Bushfire Education Centre and Memorial Garden

The Ash Wednesday Bushfire and Education Centre is place of learning about events during the devastating bushfires.

Within the gardens a newly completed memorial pays homage to the Victorian Towns effected and is truly a beautiful space for remembrance and reflection.

The centre is located in an old kindergarten in Cockatoo's McBride Street, itself a part of the Ash Wednesday Bushfire history.

On Ash Wednesday, February 16, 1983, fire exploded into Cockatoo at about 7:30pm. As the sirens sounded, many townsfolk, mainly women, children and the elderly, fled to the kinder for sanctuary. When the flames swept across them and the building filled with smoke, they lay on the floor with wet towels over their heads, while brave firefighters climbed onto the roof to ensure their safety.

The Ash Wednesday bushfires were a series of bushfires that occurred in south-eastern Australia on 16 February 1983. In Victoria, 47 people died, while in South Australia there were 28 deaths. This included 14 CFA and three CFS volunteer fire-fighters who died across both states that day. Ash Wednesday was one of Australia's costliest natural disasters. Over 3,700 buildings were destroyed or damaged and 2,545 individuals and families lost their homes.
