In 2017, the state government set aside $2.2 million to ensure that the 6,510-hectares of heathlands are protected and enjoyed as an important natural, social and community asset. This new section of national park is now known as the Great Otway National Park (Anglesea Heath).

In consultation with the community, Parks Victoria developed and reviewed project proposals and priorities in 2019. A key outcome identified through the community engagement process was to increase protection of environmental and cultural values, while supporting suitable community activities.

See our management plans and strategies for the Great Otway National Park and Otway Forest Park Management Plan which was updated to include Anglesea Heath while incorporating agreed changes to the area identified through the community engagement process.
