Langi Ghiran State Park is a popular attraction in Dobie, around 14kms from the town of Ararat.
The park’s name is derived from the name ‘Lar-ne-jeering’ which is a local word in the Djab Wurrung language and is translated to mean ‘the home of the black cockatoo’.

Take a slow walk to the mountain peak for a breathtaking view of the surrounding region. From the peak, it is also easy to see Mount Buangor whose majestic views at sunset are the highlight of any trip to Langi Ghiran State Park. There are two reservoirs within the park, both of which were built from granite blocks sourced locally at the turn of the 19th century. So important are these reservoirs that one of them constitutes a key part of the Ararat water supply system.
The state park is home to Langi Ghiran Picnic and Camping Area, and this affords visitors an excellent opportunity to extend their stay and spend the night under the sky. There are no booking fees for camping here and fires are permitted, but only in the designated fireplaces during non-fire ban periods.
There are also some peaceful walks that you can take here, the most popular being the easy Lar-ne-jeering Walk which covers 1.8kms (return) and takes around 30-40 minutes to complete.
Visitors should note that dogs and horses are not permitted in Langi Ghiran State Park, and mobile reception can be unreliable, so make sure you are equipped before you make the trip out here to stay.
