Attraction details
Owner description: The 14,655 ha Warby-Ovens National Park is characterised by three distinct vegetation communities - the granitic hills and woodlands of the Warby Range, the Box-Ironbark of the Killawarra Forest and the Redgum forest and wetlands of the unregulated Ovens Heritage River. Together they provide an important link from the alpine foothills to the Murray River, protecting some of the state's most significant bushland. The Victorian Government created Warby-Ovens National Park, along with other new and expanded parks and over 200 conservation reserves, in June 2010. Picnic at Ryan's Lookout (where the views are exceptional), Brien's Gorge Falls, Pine Gully and The Forest Camp - all have barbeque facilities and picnic tables. Walk through the managed tracks, bike ride the Pangarang Lookout Walk or Ridge track, or take a scenic drive. There are basic campgrounds at Wenhams Camp and The Forest Camp with pit toilets and barbecues, but bring your own drinking water. Warby-Ovens National Park is 240km north east of Melbourne and 10km west of Wangaratta. It is best accessed from Wangaratta via Wangandary and Yarrawonga Roads.

Salisbury Falls is accessible from Wangaratta by driving down Shanley St toward the Warby Ranges until you hit a dead end (dirt road). Once parked you can choose to walk left at the first sign (takes you along the creek and to the Falls, but no further), but the better walk is to stick straight ahead and complete a moderate difficulty 10 to 15 minute hike along the gorge. Good views of the Falls, providing it is flowing! Once at the top of the Falls you can continue walking all the way to Wenhams Camp. The track will follow the creek for some time before veering left and then crossing the creek above a smaller falls to follow the track away to the right. Once reaching a T intersection go left and you will walk along a dirt road until you see a sign for Salisbury Walk to the right. It takes you to a cairn (man made pile of rocks) and from there you can walk another 1 km to the camp site. The walk from car park to cairn is 5 km - or 10 km round trip taking 2 hrs 10 mins at a moderate pace. If you are lucky you might see a Wallaby or two. Even maybe a koala I have been told. Personally I have not seen any snakes here but you should always keep your eyes down in the warmer months, particularly near waterways. The Warbies never seems busy so it is a good place to go for some peace and quiet.

This lovely park on the outskirts of Wangaratta provides plenty of opportunities for bush walkers. There are various walks for most standards of fitness. Near buy wineries are an extra incentive to visit.

This little treasure is a great asset to the north east. With loads of walks to suit all abilities and fitness levels, you will get to enjoy some of the prettiest scenery and views across the ovens valley. Recommend the 'Sunrise Track' (hard), Salisbury Walk (medium), and Mt Glenrowan (easy but long)
