Lake Boort

Lake Boort Reserve Managment Plan March 2018 released

Parks Victoria in partnership with Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation is pleased to announce that the Lake Boort Reserve Managment Plan has been released. The plan is an outcome of the Dja Dja Wurrung Recognition and Settlement Agreement.

The intent of the Plan is to protect and enhance the outstanding natural, cultural and recreational values within the reserve. The Plan defines the approach for managing the cultural landscape, ecosystems, fire, water, pest plants and animals, recreation and tourism.

Lake Boort WR (502 ha) is in north-west Victoria, 1 km south of Boort township and 87 km north west of Bendigo. The reserve is of extremely high cultural heritage value for among other things the high density of culturally modified trees and other Aboriginal places. The reserve includes a small length of Kinypanial Creek which flows into Lake Boort from the southern end.

Lake Boort is being restored as a temporary flood plain lake with the delivery of environmental watering. The reserve will offer an array of opportunities for visitors to discover and learn about the natural and cultural values of the reserve. Duck hunting will continue across the wetland and a designated camping area with fireplaces will be established.
