Ms D’Ambrosio visited Melba Gully last week where refurbishments of a barbecue area and picnic shelter are now complete, providing the perfect spot for visitors to take a break and enjoy the scenery as they explore the lush rainforest.

She journeyed on the Madsen’s Track Nature Walk, taking in the sights of the rainforest, various types of trees and ferns, as well as the sticky thread of glow worms that are an attraction of Melba Gully at night.

The update to facilities is a part of the State Government’s $2.5-million investment package, improving visitor facilities in the national park.

Ms D’Ambrosio said the government was committed to ensuring Victorian, national and international visitors enjoyed their experience at the unique national park.
