Best times to visit
There are lots of great things waiting for you in Mebbin National Park. Here are some of the highlights.
Early spring is typically the driest time of year and sunny weather prevails, so this is a great time for visiting the park and enjoying active adventures, such as mountain biking, walking and horse riding along the trails.
The park is still very pleasant on even the hottest summer days, particularly when enjoyed from a shady spot. Cool off in Byrrill Creek and enjoy a picnic under the eucalypt trees.
