Terrick Terrick is a 3880 hectare national park in Victoria, Australia, 225 kilometres northwest of Melbourne, 4 kilometres north of the town of Mitiamo and 65 kilometres north of the City of Bendigo. It is an important remnant of Box-Ironbark forests and northern grass plains and is close to Kow Swamp, the site of a major palaeontological find providing insight into the origins of Indigenous Australians. There are many walking tracks and one basic campground. Drinking water is not available in the park and must be carried.
