National Parks in VictoriaEdit This
The best known national parks in Victoria include the Grampians, Wilson's Promontory, and the Alpine National Park, the largest in the State.
The Grampians is situated in Western Victoria and consists of a series of ragged mountain ranges, interspersed with rivers, lakes, and Hall's Gap, a township in the mountains.
Wilson's Promontory is described as Victoria's best-loved national park, and is on the southern tip of mainland Australia. Camping, walking and swimming are the principal activities in this park, with the main campground Tidal River, requiring a ballot entry booking 12 months in advance during peak periods. There are also 12 outstation camping areas, all which require booking. The park is home to possibly Victoria's best beaches, including Sealer's Cove, Refuge Cove and Waterloo Bay on the eastern side, and Norman Bay and Squeaky Beach the most popular on the western side. The eastern beaches are sheltered and often deserted.
The Alpine national park includes eight out of Victoria's nine 1800m peaks, the highest of which is Mt. Bogong, at 1986m. Three major ski resorts, Mt. Buller, Falls Creek and Mt. Hotham are within the boundaries of the park, and there are many ski touring opportunities.
There are more than 75 national parks in Victoria, some of which are unspectacular, and others are unforgettable. Victoria's national parks are it's biggest assets.
