The Snowy River is renowned for canoeing and rafting, and this remote park is ideal for those who appreciate magnificent forests, rugged gorges and wild landscapes.

McKillops Bridge is one of the few places with conventional vehicle access to the Snowy River. The Deddick River meets the Snowy just upstream of the bridge and wide sandy beaches with shallow rock pools between the rapids make this a great swimming spot.

Gunaikurnai and Victorian Government Joint Management Plan

The Gunaikurnai and Victorian Government Joint Management Plan was approved by the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change in July 2018.

The plan guides the partnership between the Gunaikurnai people and the Victorian Government in the joint management of the ten parks and reserves for which the Gunaikurnai have gained Aboriginal Title as a result of their 2010 Recognition and Settlement Agreement with the Victorian Government.

The plan provides the strategic and operational direction for the ongoing management of these parks and reserves and supersedes any former approved management plans for them.

Aboriginal Traditional Owners

Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, the Bidawal and Nindi-Ngudjam Ngarigu Monero identify the Snowy River National Park as their Traditional Country.Further information is available from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria AAV and Native Title Services Victoria

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 New Guinea Cave located within the Snowy River National Park.
