The Cobboboonee National Park is a national park located in the Barwon South West region of Victoria, Australia. The 18,510-hectare (45,700-acre) national park is situated approximately 360 kilometres (220 mi) west of Melbourne city centre, with access via the town of Heywood near the junctions of the Princes and Henty highways, north of Portland.

Prior to its proclamation as a national park in November 2008, the area was formerly the Cobboboonee State Forest. The Lower Glenelg National Park is located to the west of the park and the Fitzroy River arises from the swamps within the park. Part of the course of the Great South West Walk is located within the park.
The Gunditjmara people are the Traditional Owners of this area containing the national park.

  • I have heard about this park which is home for threatened bird and animal species such as the Powerful Owl, Spot-tailed Quoll and Southern Brown Bandicoot. It was a great pleasure to be there.

  • This place is seriously cool. Free camping and maintained in a lovely manner. It has drop loos and some spots they will even have wood for your bbq waiting. (If your lucky, not all bbqs had this. Maybe other campers indulged) it's a bush camp.. We stayed at jackass gully which you can take your horse too which I think is unique. And there is a lovely walk near by just watch out for the leaches.. We went in summer -December. Will definitely go again
  • Such a shame that the sustainable forestry once conducted here is no more. Also sad to see that limestone is now the chosen roading material. Odd that conservationists would prefer foreign material being carted in for roading instead of local endemic material.
  • Apart from how you pronounce it, there is nothing difficult about this place. Such beautiful camp sites and so peaceful!!
  • Love visiting this quiet and special place. Has a family connection.
  • Visit today....
