Landscape 1 - Alpine and Forested Parks


Communities caring for, and connecting with healthy forests, alps and waterways


A visually spectacular area containing extensive areas of forest and alpine vegetation. This landscape has the headwaters for many of north east Victoria’s rivers and a range of biodiversity hotspots.

This landscape is significant to a number of Traditional Owners/First Nations Peoples, and to many people for ceremonial and celebration purposes as well as for food and resource collection in certain seasons.

It supports high levels of nature-based tourism and the alpine resorts attract a transient winter population. Most of this landscape is Parks Victoria managed public land in partnership with Traditional Owners/First Nations Peoples where joint management is in place, and by DELWP and Alpine Resort Management Boards.
