Notice of Deer Control - Bunyip State Park

Following the 2019 bushfires affecting Bunyip State Park, Parks Victoria has observed large numbers of deer entering and leaving the park, which is having a negative impact on natural regeneration. This has also been confirmed by reports from the local community. In response, Parks Victoria has obtained a permit from the Game Management Authority to undertake a controlled, safe and humane deer control operation targeting Fallow and Sambar Deer within Bunyip State Park.

Control will occur each month until at least February 2022. Upcoming control nights are as follows, from 5pm to 7am:
  • Monday 24 May – Thursday 27 May 2021 (into the early hours of Friday)
  • Monday 31 June – Thursday 3 June 2021 (into the early hours of Friday)
  • Monday 14 June – Thursday 17 June 2021 (into the early hours of Friday)
 
The following roads and visitor sites will be closed during the times listed above:
  • Black Snake Creek Road (sections)
  • Bunyip River Road
  • Towt Road
  • Ash Landing Road
  • Four Brothers Rocks
  • Helmet Track Unloading Area
  • Dyers Camping and Picnic Ground
  • Nash Creek Camping and Picnic Ground
 
All areas within the control area will be closed during the deer control operation and reopen during the day. A map of control areas is attached.

This program will use accredited, authorised contractors, using deer legal calibre rifles. Suppressors are used, however shots may still be heard in the area.

To be added to a contact list for further details of the program please email info@parks.vic.gov.au or call 13 1963.
