Projects

We're delivering millions of dollars of investment across Victoria on projects that are helping to connect people with nature, protect the state's special landscapes, and support local communities and regional economies. This is important work in supporting nature's future.

From walking trails and campgrounds to piers, lookouts and predator-proof fences, these projects are helping to future-proof the state's parks, reserves and waterways for future generations to enjoy.
