Volunteering in parks is a great way to contribute to conserving Victoria’s special places. The many personal benefits of volunteering include learning more about plants and wildlife, gaining new skills, being in the outdoors, improving health and well being and meeting new friends. Time spent in nature also reduces stress and promotes physical wellbeing.

    Jells Park Cafe

    The lease for the Jells Park Visitor Café at Jells Park ended in late February 2024. In line with the Leasing Policy for Victorian Crown Land 2023, an EOI process ran during 2023 seeking suitably qualified operators to provide a food and beverage offer at the café.
    A suitable new operator has now signed the lease and the café will be closed to the public while they set up. A coffee cart is now operational on site - so visitors can continue to enjoy coffee, juices and cakes in the interim.
    Any further updates on the café will be maintained on this page.
