This park includes the former Whipstick and Kamarooka State Parks, One Tree Hill Regional Park, Mandurang State Forest and Sandhurst State Forest and spans 17 007 hectares. The park contains some of the highest quality Box-Ironbark forest in the Bendigo area, along with broombush mallee, grassy woodlands and Kamarooka mallee. The park conserves some of north-central Victoria's most outstanding natural features. The park itself is the product of intensive use over the past 150 years from gold mining, land selection, forestry, and eucalyptus oil production. Many significant relics of these industries, particularly the gold mining and eucalyptus oil industries, remain in the park today.
Daylesford's most unique bed and breakfast property, Blue Cliffs Retreat, a true romantic escape and retreat to peace, quiet and seclusion, is an experience to remember with its own lake, set on 25 acres native bush, totally surrounded by Wombat State Forest, and yet, only 5 minutes drive from the restaurants and spa resort in Hepburn Springs.
