Chiltern-Mount Pilot National Park



Located between Beechworth and the low hills surrounding Chiltern, this park includes the striking Mt Pilot Range and Woolshed Falls and protects box-ironbark forest that once covered much of north-east Victoria.

Short or day-long walks can be made on vehicle tracks through open forest and a 25 kilometre historic drive is marked from Chiltern through the forest and goldfields.

Things to Do
Donchi Hill - Drive through the forest to Donchi Hill Lookout then on to the original Indigo goldfields cemetery - about an hour and a half round trip. Picnic tables and wood barbecues are provided.

Woolshed Falls - A ten minute drive north from Beechworth provides the opportunity to view the falls and have a picnic. The falls are spectacular after heavy rainfalls.

Honeyeater Picnic Area - Enjoy a pleasant picnic at Honeyeater Picnic Area. Picnic tables, wood barbecues and pit toilets are provided.

Magenta Mine Picnic Area - Visit the open-cut Magenta Mine which produced up to 13,000 ounces of gold between 1860 and about 1910. Horse-drawn drays carted away the rock for crushing in the nearby battery. A kilometre away is the site of a battery run by the Victorian Government in an effort to revive gold mining during the 1930s depression. Facilities include picnic tables, a lookout and wood barbecues.

Prospecting - Prospecting is permitted in designated areas. Prospectors must hold a current Miner's Right. Refer to the Prospecting Area map for more information.

Walking and Cycling - Well formed vehicle tracks throughout the park provide access to a variety of short or day‐long walks and are suitable for cycling, horse riding and car and four‐wheel drive touring. Enjoy easy walking along the 8.5km White Box Walking Track that has interpretative signs describing the natural and historical features of the park. Cycle on forest tracks at Donchi Hill in the west, Frogs Hollow and Magenta Mine and at Cyanide Dam. Visit Woolshed Falls and take the self-guided Woolshed Falls Historic Walk. Walk to the summit of Mt Pilot and enjoy the spectacular view.

How to get there - Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park is 275km north east of Melbourne and 34km north of Wangaratta. Follow the Hume Freeway to the Chiltern turn off.
