Strzelecki Ranges

The Strzelecki Ranges are in Gippsland, running east-west from approximately 100 km east of Melbourne and extending for roughly 100 km. They are comprised of deeply dissected sandstone and mudstone, generally rising from 300 to 500 metres, with the highest point at Mount Tassie, 730 metres.

Before European settlement the ranges were clothed in dense forest, composed of tall eucalypts with heavy undergrowth. Aborigines hunted in the mountains, but the food supply was uncertain and the climate wet and cold, precluding permanent occupation.
