Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park

National Park in Chiltern

This important national park protects some of Victoria's last stands of Box-Ironbark forest in a patchwork of protected areas around the town. This is also one of the last Victorian refuges for the endangered Regent's Honeyeater, along with more than 200 other bird species. The Chiltern Visitor Centre has maps, a park information sheet, a brochure entitled Bird Trails of Chiltern, and information on the best places to see the Regent's Honeyeater.

To immerse yourself in the Ironbarks, consider the 8.5km Whitebox Walking Track, which completes a circuit in the area of the park south of Chiltern; ask at the visitor centre for directions.
