Into nature to create a better Victoria

We inspire Victorians to protect and enjoy our unique natural and cultural heritage.

Putting nature first today for tomorrow, we champion the importance of nature by managing, protecting and sharing Victoria’s precious places. In partnership with Traditional Owners, we help connect people with Country, understand cultural heritage and contribute to human health and wellbeing.

The 'Shaping our Future' strategic plan is framed around four goals, which provide the context and focus for all of our activities:

  • Caring for Country – To sustainably manage, protect and conserve Victoria’s natural and cultural landscapes.
  • Connecting People and Nature – To provide experiences for visitors and volunteers to connect with and value nature.
  • Contributing to Healthy, Liveable Communities – To contribute to improving the health, safety and economic wellbeing of all Victorians.
  • Enhancing Organisational Excellence – To enhance our capability, capacity and culture to deliver on our commitments.
