This State Park has been upgraded to a National Park.

Kara Kara National Park is 200km north-west of Melbourne. Main access to the park is from the Sunraysia Highway to the east. At Stuart Mill, follow the signs to Teddington Campground. St Arnaud Regional Park to the north is easily accessible from the town of St Arnaud.

Kara Kara National Park features mainly steep, forested terrain and is an ideal place to experience what the forests of Central Victoria were like before the gold rushes. The rocky ridge tops in the park offer fine views for bushwalkers and four-wheel-drive tourers, and there are ample opportunities for hiking in the steep and rugged terrain. The Upper Teddington Reservoir is a peaceful place for picnics and camping.

The whole Kara Kara National Park’s road network is suited to touring in four wheel drive vehicles and on trail bikes. Popular routes for individuals and organised four wheel drive groups are along Centre Road, which traverses the north–south length of the park and offers many vantage points across the landscape, and the Mount Separation Road in the east of the park. It is suited only to four wheel drive vehicles with high clearance.
