The Heathcote-Graytown National Park is a national park located in the North Central region of Victoria, Australia. The 12,833-hectare (31,710-acre) national park, which includes sections of the Great Dividing Range, adjoins a number of state forests, including the McIvor Ranges State Forest and is located just outside the town of Heathcote.
The area was gazetted as a national park by the Victorian Government on 30 October 2002 . This was a controversial issue at the time. It was primarily proclaimed to protect Victoria's diminishing box-ironbark forests, crucial in retaining Victoria's biodiversity.
