Two the most important issues driving the formation of the Victorian National Parks Association was the need for an Act of Parliament to direct management of national parks in Victoria, and also the need for a comprehensive national park to give protection to the valuable and vulnerable ecosystems in the alpine region of the State.

Since then we have consistently, and strongly, advocated for those same issues.

It is in that context that we frame this submission: for good reason, the national parks in the alpine region must be protected and managed under the clear objects of Victoria’s National Parks Act 1975.
