Mitchell River National Park has impressive river scenery, serene rainforest gullies, rugged landscapes and some of Victoria’s more unusual vegetation communities. From open forest to remote river gorges, the park is home to a vast array of indigenous flora and fauna, some at the furthermost extent of their range.

The park is an exciting destination for outdoor enthusiasts and boasts unspoilt natural beauty and remoteness. Canoeing or rafting provides the easiest access to much of the park. The river offers the canoeist short day trips or extended touring through tranquil pools and turbulent rapids down to the Gippsland Lakes. The best time canoeing is from July to December.



Gunaikurnai Joint Management Plan

The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board (GKTOLMB) are currently developing a Joint Management Plan in consultation with Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment Land, Water and Planning. The plan will cover the ten parks and reserves for which the Gunaikurnai have gained Aboriginal Title as a result of the 2010 Traditional Owners Land Management Agreement.

The plan will supersede any existing plans and set out objectives for achieving sustainable management within the existing legal framework and in accordance with recognised management principles. It will also provide strategic and operational direction for the ongoing management of these parks and reserves. 

If you would like to be involved please visit The draft plan is due to be released for public comment toward the end of 2015.


Aboriginal Traditional Owners


The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owners' strong connection with the land has been legally recognised in a settlement agreement that enables them to jointly manage 10 parks in Eastern Victoria, including Mitchell River National Park.


Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Further information is available from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria AAV and Native Title Services Victoria
