Important facts about the proposed Great Forest National Park
  • A proposal by advocates who want to lock up 355,000 hectares of public land in Victoria’s northeast, prohibiting current activities enjoyed by hunters, anglers and recreational outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Would shut down a sustainable timber industry, putting hundreds of Victorians out of work.
  • Under a national parks system, Parks Victoria would become the agency responsible for maintaining more than double the property it already struggles to maintain due to budget cuts.
  • A lack of appropriate maintenance and prohibited hunting use would create unacceptable risks to environment and communities due to increased bushfire danger and feral animal destruction.
