Joint Management

Under the terms of our 2010 native title agreement, a Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) majority Traditional Owner Land Management Board will be established to oversee the planning and management of 10 parks and reserves:

  • The Knob Reserve, Stratford
  • Tarra-Bulga National Park
  • Mitchell River National Parks
  • The Lakes National Park
  • Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park
  • New Guinea Cave (within the Snowy River National Park)
  • Land within the Lake Tyers Catchment Area
  • Buchan Caves Reserve
  • Gippsland Lakes Reserve at Raymond Island
  • Corringle Foreshore Reserve

We are working in partnership with Parks Victoria (PV) and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to establish these new management arrangements, protect and promote our culture and create employment opportunities for our people.
