Camping Cathedral Range State Park
Cathedral Range State Park Campgrounds Victoria
The spectacular, high-peaked ridge of the Cathedral Range offers great opportunities for avid bushwalkers, rock climbing and other outdoor pursuits to suit all interests and all levels of fitness and ability. To get to the Cathedral Range State Park, take Cathedral Lane off the Maroondah Hwy between Taggerty and Buxton. During the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, some 92% of Cathedral State park was damaged by fire, and is therefore still recovering. And whilst access to most areas has been restored, it is recommended that you contact Parks Victoria for the latest information.
