The Labor Government is funding the construction of four tourist hubs in the heart of Victoria’s Alpine National Park.
The hubs will be built by Parks Victoria but privately-operated. The development will impact 45 hectares of the park – 22 times the size of the MCG oval.
If the large-scale construction in the Bogong High Plains and Mount Feathertop goes ahead, the natural and cultural heritage of Victoria’s high country will be forever compromised.
This isn’t “park management”– it’s taxpayer-funded exploitation of the nature and wildlife the park was proclaimed to protect.

We should be protecting our few undeveloped patches of the natural world, not commercialising them.
Tell Parks Victoria and the environment minister that you don’t want our precious Alps privatised.
