CONSERVATION PARKS

CONSERVATION PARKS

Our region contains diverse parks, conserving an array of natural and human influenced environments, including tall woodlands with grassy understory, open grasslands, mallee habitats, transition zones between ridges and plains, and associated creek systems and heritage buildings, which provide many visitor experiences. 

Activities visitors might like to undertake in these areas include bushwalking, birdwatching, bush camping, visiting our past and generally relaxing in the natural environment. 

Travelling

The main roads in the area are sealed, although most roads to the parks are unsealed. All roads to the east of the Barrier Highway are unsealed and vehicluar traffic can be infrequent, as well, the area is sparsely settled. Be prepared for your intended travel. 

Camping

Vehicle based bush camping opportunities exisit at Redbanks and Caroona Creek conservation parks. The essence of bush camping is to have as little impact on the land as possible. Please take your rubbish home with you.
