Nearby Walks


The Tarra-Bulga Guest House is located in Balook, right next-door to the awe-inspiring Tarra-Bulga National Park and in the middle of the Grand Strzelecki Track.

Because we’re so close to some of the best hiking and walking trails in central Gippsland, we have to tell you about them!
