One Tree Hill Lookout and Picnic Area
Greater Bendigo National Park is one of six jointly managed parks in Central West Victoria by the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and Parks Victoria. For more information on Joint Management, please visit the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and Dhelkunya Dja Land Management Board who oversee implementation of the Joint Management Plan 2018 - see relevent strategy and resources documents.
One Tree Hill is a popular spot for sightseeing and picnics, with a number of bushland tracks for walking, cycling and running. A fire lookout tower on the summit of the hill offers views over Bendigo and the surrounding landscape. The view is magnificent on a clear day, and the spectacular sunsets are worth the climb. Enjoy a leisurely picnic at the tables and shelter at the foot of the tower.
Drive, walk or cycle along Edwards Road in Flora Hill to the lookout, or park at the bottom of One Tree Hill Road in Spring Gully, and walk or cycle up from there. Bring binoculars for some birdwatching or visit in Spring to see the wildflowers that carpet the floor of the Box-Ironbark forest.
The bushland surrounding the tower offers walkers a network of tracks to explore, such as the easy 3km Lookout Loop track, or the Bendigo Bushland Trail, a 65km trail that circles the city, passing through various parks and reserves. Both tracks start from the stone building at the base of the lookout tower.
