Baw Baw National Park is situated approximately 120 kilometres east of Melbourne and 50 kilometres north of the Latrobe Valley. The main access to the plateau is from the Mount Erica and St Gwinear carparks along signposted roads off the Thomson Valley Road, north of Erica. The Baw Baw Alpine Resort which adjoins the park can be reached from the Princes Highway at Drouin by following the Mount Baw Baw Tourist Road.

There are many kilometres of walking tracks traversing pristine sub-alpine plant communities and unique landscapes.

There are some great drives in and around the park. Take a drive along Thompson Dam Access Road for spectacularviews of the dam wall.Mount St Gwinear Road up to Mount St Gwinear carpark is another lovely drive through the changing forest.Roads throughout the area are narrow and winding but offer marvellous scenery with panoramic views. Take care when driving as many of the roads are regularly used bylogging trucks.The road past Walhalla into the Aberfeldy River valley is unsuitable for caravans. Many of thetracks in the Thomson and Aberfeldy Valleys aresuitable for 4WD vehicles only. Many roads and tracks are closed during the winter months.The Mount St Gwinear Road is a declaredhazardous road during winter (bus drivers requirean appropriate licence). Snow chains must becarried during thedeclared ski season and fitted when and where directed.

Dispersed bush camping is permitted on the Baw Baw Plateau. The Plateau is a fuel stove only area, therefore no camp fires are permitted. The area falls within domestic water supply catchments, so please bury waste at least 100m from any water
