Working in partnership to heal Country

Victoria Nature Festival

Bradd is the Ranger team leader in Robinvale on the banks of the Murray River. He works with a great team to keep the parks alongside the river open for the local community and visitors alike.

Aboriginal people have cared for and sustainably managed Victoria’s cultural landscapes for thousands of years.

Traditional Owners have both a cultural obligation and a legal right to be custodians of their traditional land and waters and protect the unique natural and cultural values they contain. 

As manager of over 4 million hectares of Victoria’s parks and reserves, Parks Victoria is proud to have the opportunity to work with Traditional Owners to care for this special Country. 

Through Managing Country Together, we are playing our part to support Aboriginal self-determination. Learn more about how Parks Victoria works in partnership with Traditional Owners.
