Volunteer

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.

    Park Closures Due to flooding

    Above average rainfall in the the Ovens and Upper  Murray  catchment's has resulted in  increased the releases  of water from the Yarrawonga and Hume Weir's  resulting in flooding that will impact sections of the  Proposed Murray River Park from Albury  to Tocumwal.
    Tracks will become impassable and river beaches will become inundated resulting in a requirement to  close parks for public safety.
