Woowookarung Regional Park is a brand new 641-hectare park in Ballarat by the people, for the people.
Perfect for bushwalking, trail running and cycling, the informal network of tracks are surrounded by Messmate Stringybark, Grass Trees, and native heath.
Take your dog for a walk (on lead) to scenic lookouts, or ride your horse through the former state forest and plantation, while keeping an eye out for kangaroos, echidnas, bird species, and colourful wildflowers.
Keen mountain bikers can discover two existing trails located behind Mount Clear College.
There are currently no toilets, car park or picnic areas in the park, but the Woowookarung Regional Park Strategic Directions Plan (PDF) outlines the proposed visitor facilities planned for the future.
