About

Parks Victoria is a statutory authority, created by the Parks Victoria Act 2018 and reporting to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change; Minister for Suburban Development, The Hon Liliana (Lily) D'Ambrosio MLA, and Minister for Ports; Minister for Roads and Road Safety, The Hon Luke Donellan MLA.
Parks Victoria is established under the Parks Victoria Act 2018 as an independent statutory authority to protect, conserve and enhance Parks Victoria managed land, including its natural and cultural values, for the benefit of the environment and current and future generations.

The Parks Victoria Act was recently significantly amended to provide us with direct responsibility for Parks Victoria managed land.  Many of the powers required to manage public land under the National Parks Act 1975, the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978, Land Act 1958, Forests Act 1958, Conservation Forests and Land Act 1987, Water Industry Act 1994 and Wildlife Act 1975 were previously held by the Secretary to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.  These powers are now directly held by Parks Victoria – increasing our accountability for managing public land for the people of Victoria.

The new Act also provides us with a clear framework by which to achieve our goals, while strengthening our focus on engaging with the community and with Traditional Owners.
