species Eucalypt forest, and features waterfalls, tree fern gullies and an abundance of native Australian wildlife including birds and mammals. The Murrindindi Scenic Reserve provides excellent opportunities for a range of family recreational activities such as camping, bushwalking, bird watching and fishing. The Murrindindi River is suitable for basic canoeing. The Toolangi State Forest is the traditional land of the Kulin nation; the Taungurung tribe were custodians of the land in the north and the Wurundjeri tribe cared for lands in the south. It is understood that in the Wurundjeri language, Murrindindi means ‘Mountain Home’ which seems appropriate for this Reserve, which is popular with Victorian families.
