Cobboboonee National Park – Finally!

The creation of Cobboboonee National Park, a 18,400 hectare park in south-west Victoria is a great win for Victorians. This induction into the National Parks Act ensures that the habitat of threatened bird and animal species such as the Powerful Owl, Spot-tailed Quoll and Southern Brown Bandicoot will now be protected and biodiversity can thrive. Environment Victoria played a key role in this campaign in the early years, and alongside other environment groups in more recent times, working hard to win the new national park.
