Love your forests - Have your say
The Victorian Government in partnership with Traditional Owners is embarking on a major program to reform our forest management. Forests provide Victorian communities with a broad range of uses and values that include clean water and air, grand old trees, biodiversity conservation, recreation and connection with nature, and jobs and economic opportunities. We manage our forests for the multiple values they provide so future generations can enjoy and use forests as we do today. Further information on this reform program can be found on our Future of Our Forests page, which also contains a survey (open til 31st March 2019) seeking your views.
More To Explore App
Forest Fire Management Victoria have built a mobile phone app for iPhones (Android version to follow in September 2018) called More To Explore which aims to provide information to help people use and enjoy Victoria’s 3.1 million hectares of State forest and its network of approximately 400 visitor sites and 250 recreational trails. See the More to Explore Apps and Maps page for further information.
Events on public land
With hundreds of events held in State forests every year, Forest Fire Management Victoria need to make sure that these events are held safely and in alignment with regulatory requirements. See the Events on public land page for further information on requirements for a permit and applicable event fees.
Before you go
State forests are here for you to enjoy but there are a couple of key things you should keep in mind when visiting. See the Before You Go page for further information on staying safe in State forests.
Forest notes have been prepared to provide information for visitors on things to see and do in state forests across Victoria. They are divided into districts as illustrated on the map and are provided in three formats:
- Standard pdf format (including descriptive text and map)
- Accessible Word version (text only - suitable for use in electronic readers for those with visual impairment)
- GeoPdf map only (suitable for use in mobile devices). Note – There are a limited number of these at present but all new/revised Forest Notes will be produced in this format.
