Tarra Bulga National Park is situated approximately 200 kilometres east of Melbourne. The park is reached from Yarram via the Tarra Valley road or alternatively from the princess highway at Traralgon by following Traralgon Creek road to Balook. Roads throughout the area are narrow and winding but offer marvellous scenery with panoramic views. Tarra Bulga was explored by a Polish explorer in 1840 by Count Strzelecki and his party with Aboriginal Guide, Charlie Tarra.

The cool moist conditions of the park is a good environment for over 41 species of ferns and other various trees as, Southern Sassafras, Austral Mulberry and Banyallas. Mountain Ash, Messmate and Blackwood grow on the hills and slopes through out the park. The park provides food and nesting areas for birds like the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo, Eastern Whipbird, Laughing Kookaburra and Crimson Rosella.

At night the forest comes to life with possums, owls and bats. But during the day if you are lucky you may catch a glimps of a lyrebird in its natural habitat.
