River Red Gum Parks Management Plan
Help plan the future for River Red Gum Parks and Reserves
Parks Victoria is developing a management plan to guide the protection of much of Victoria's River Red Gum floodplain parks, reserves and wetlands, looking at how we should manage the environment, cultural sites, tourism and recreation. The 215 000 ha planning area includes national parks, state parks, the proposed Murray River Park, and conservation and other reserves managed by Parks Victoria along the Murray, Goulburn and Ovens rivers between Wodonga and the South Australian border.
The draft plan is now available for comment. Development of the draft plan for public consultation involved reviewing existing plans and information, and an extensive program of community engagement including Open Houses in key towns along the Murray.
