Mount Granya State Park

Mount Granya State Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.

Discover a hidden gem of native flora, Australian wildlife and historic relics in Mount Granya State Park. Wander nature trails through the open forest to hear lyrebirds calling and enjoy the wildflowers that bloom in abundance in springtime. Mount Granya State Park is home to a number of animal species, too, including the Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Black Wallaby and Common Wombat.

Visit remnants of the park's industrial past at Powder Magazine. Built by the Forests Commission in the 1960s, this concrete structure once stored explosives used for the construction of roads in nearby forests and pine plantations. See the Scout Hut, a log hut constructed in 1937 by the Granya Scout Group.

Drive to the highest point in Mount Granya State Park, complete with a fire tower used to detect bushfires during the summer months. Take in views over the Georges Creek valley and nearby Jarvis Creek Regional Park from Georges Creek Lookout.

Take the Mount Granya Walking Track for more magnificent views. Walk his 10.4 km return track from Cottontree Creek visitor area to the summit of Mount Granya. Take in the fresh air as you pass through open eucalypt forest on the way to those views. Along the way, stop off at the Granya Scout Hut and Granya Falls.

Some 235 native plant species have been recorded in the park. Most of Mount Granya State Park's steep slopes are forested with open stands of Red Stringybark and Long-leaf Box, while on the plateau and the southern slopes, you can find beautiful Broad-leaf and Narrow-leaf Peppermints. Keep an eye out for small areas of Black Cypress-pine on the dry northern slopes, as well as other rare native species such as Crimson Grevillia and Grey Rice-flower.

Birds are abundant here – well over 100 species have been recorded, and many Superb Lyrebirds make the park their home. Wander the 400m Lyrebird Loop Trail through the open forest and rock outcrops on the summit of Mount Granya. Listen out for these shy birds' loud calls, which show off their incredible mimicry skills, and watch for glimpses of their impressive tail plumage.
