The Tarra-Bulga National Park is a national park located in the south Gippsland region of eastern Victoria, Australia. The park is located south of Traralgon on the Traralgon-Balook Road.The 1522ha national park is situated approximately east of Melbourne and north of in the eastern part of the Strzelecki Ranges. The park is home to one of the last remnants of the indigenous eucalypt forests which once covered the region. The undisturbed mountain ash forests, fern gully communities and associated Myrtle Beech stands within the park are of considerable biogeographical significance.HistoryThe area was first set aside as Bulga National Park in 1904, comprising 20ha. In 1909 Tarra Valley National Park was designated nearby, with 303ha reserved. Over the years the two parks were gradually enlarged and then merged as the Tarra-Bulga National Park, proclaimed on.FeaturesThere are numerous walking tracks that emanate from the picnic areas. The Tarra Valley Rainforest Walk is a short and easy walk taking in Cyathea Falls, and the Fern Gully Nature Walk, passes over Corrigan's Suspension Bridge, which stretches through the rainforest canopy with views of the fern gully below. The three- to four-day 100km Grand Strzelecki Track connects the park with the adjacent Morwell National Park.
