Our Story

Is there a patch of Victoria you love?

For a group of us more than 40 years ago, it was the Little Desert in western Victoria. When the government wanted to subdivide this area for agricultural development, people from all across the state came together to protect this place they loved. Their passion and dedication saved this unique landscape, which later become the Little Desert National Park.

This was a watershed win for the Victorian community, marking the beginning of a new environmental awareness. Fired up by their pioneering victory, this small group of Victorians realised we needed a peak organisation that focused on environmental issues across the state.

And that’s how Environment Victoria got started.
