Bunyip State Park is a 166-square-kilometre (64 sq mi) state park 65 kilometres (40 mi) east of Melbourne, near the town of Gembrook. The area was used for logging from 1898 until 1990, and was turned into a state park two years later. The park is named after the bunyip, an mythical Aboriginal mythical creature that was thought to live along the Bunyip River that flows through the park.
The terrain in the park is mostly dense forest and swampy heathland, with Prickly Tea-tree, Mountain Ash and Mealy Stringybark present. Camping is available at Nash Creek Camping Area and Dyers Picnic Ground under towering Mountain Ash. Black Snake Creek Road runs through the centre of the park from east to west. To the south of Black Snake Creek Road the park is suitable for walking, mountain bike riding and horse riding. To the north for trail bike and four wheel driving. Parks Victoria have a few maps with suggested rides, drives and walks.
