The forested and mountainous landscape of the Central Highlands makes for a challenging yet rewarding location to ride. Spectacular forests, gruelling hill climbs and breath-taking views await the willing cyclist.
We propose adding 355,000 hectares of protected forests to the Central Highlands of Victoria to form the Great Forest National Park
Currently there is only 170,000 hectares of parks and protected areas in the Central Highlands of Victoria
Help support our work in expressing the conservation needs and compelling opportunities that we could address through the establishment of the Great Forest National Park for Victoria.
How to Donate
The Great Forest National Park is a large complex proposal, covering environmental impacts and the conservation of wildlife, economic benefits to the area and more. Visit our FAQ for more information.

The traditional custodians of this country include the Bunurong (Boon Wurrung), Gunaikurnai, Taungurung (Daung warring) and Wurundjeri indigenous Australians. We acknowledge this land belongs to the sovereign people of the First Nations. This land was stolen from them and their sovereignty was never ceded. This park conservation plan is subject to ongoing discussions and approvals with relevant clans and corporations and fully supports and recognises all their cultural rights, control and access.
Businesses can become brand partners for the project by supporting the Great Forest National Park initiative and pushing the proposed park to their audience.
