- A conservation management program is being conducted until May 2020 in parts of the Warby-Ovens National Park. Where necessary, areas of the park may be temporarily closed while the program is underway for public safety and to minimise impact to visitors. at Warby-Ovens National Park, Tuesday 14 May, 2019
The 14,655 ha Warby-Ovens National Park is characterised by three distinct vegetation communities - the granitic hills and woodlands of the Warby Range, the Box-Ironbark of the Killawarra Forest and the Redgum forest and wetlands of the unregulated Ovens Heritage River. Together they provide an important link from the alpine foothills to the Murray River protecting some of the State’s most significant bushland.
The Victorian Government created Warby-Ovens National Park, along with other new and expanded parks and over 200 conservation reserves, in June 2010 to protect and enhance the remaining River Red gum forests in Victoria.
How to Get There
