Lerderderg State Park (incorporating the former Pyrete State Forest) is a 14,250 hectare park located between Bacchus Marsh and Blackwood, an hour's drive from Melbourne, Australia. There are several maintained tracks for walking through the park and camping is allowed.
Parks Victoria maintains six designated walks: three short walks of 3.5km or less; Blackwood-O'Briens Crossing and return (22km); O'Briens Crossing-Cowan Track loop (14km); and the overnight walk O'Briens Crossing to Mackenzies Flat (20km).
In addition, one leg of the Great Dividing Trail, the Lerderderg Track, passes through the park, entering from Blackwood in the park's northwest, and exiting south towards Bacchus Marsh. Bicycles are prohibited from one section of this track, due to a conservation area.
