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 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.

River Red Gum Parks Draft Management Plan

Submissions to the draft management plan closed on the 14 October 2017. Parks Victoria would like to thank everyone who took the time to read and provide submissions. All comments will be carefully considered in finalising the management plan.
