River Red Gum Parks Management Plan

River Red Gum Plan 

Help plan the future for River Red Gum Parks and Reserves

Parks Victoria is developing a management plan that will guide the protection of many of Victoria's River Red Gum floodplain forests and wetlands, cultural sites and the management of tourism and recreation. The 220,000 hectare planning area includes national parks, state parks, conservation reserves, crown land reserves and other areas managed by Parks Victoria along the Murray River between Wodonga and the South Australian border. The key stages of the planning process involve review of existing plans and information, a program of community engagement, release of a draft plan for public consultation, and release of a final plan.

Regular updates will be provided on this web page to keep you informed about how you can be involved.

Community Open House sessions - thank you to all who attended

Community Open House meetings were held in regional centres across the planning area in April 2016.  Thank you to all who attended.

The planning team will use the information from the open houses to help prepare the draft plan. Once the draft plan is developed, there will be a 2 month period for community and stakeholders to provide comment. 

How to use the community information sheets and other resources

Information sheets have been prepared to help you consider the various topics that will be addressed in the management plan.  This information is intended to help you provide informed comments to us, that we will carefully consider in the preparation of the draft management plan.

  • A brochure provides an introduction about the plan, the areas covered, how to get involved, and the stages and timing of the process.
  • Community information sheet "overviews" provide a starting point for reading up on your topic of interest.
  • Community information sheets contain in-depth information about subject areas covered in the plan.
  • A feedback form will assist you in providing us with your comments.
