Parks Victoria look after some of the best spaces for walking in Victoria. Parks Victoria is an independent statutory authority and its role is to protect, conserve and enhance Victoria’s parks and waterways on behalf of all Victorians.

** COVID-19 / Coronavirus update: As of March 2020 the Victorian Government has closed some popular national parks as part of containment measures for the disease. Please check this link to see if your intended destination is impacted. Note also that in addition to closing some popular parks, Parks Victoria has closed water fountains and BBQ facilities, and some viewing platforms at popular parks and no camping is allowed at present at any parks managed by Parks Victoria. 

Wilson's Promontory has a daily visitor cap (and camping and cabins in the park have been closed).

Playgrounds and skate parks across Victoria have also been closed by directive of the state government. For parks, reserves and beaches managed by local government / councils - please check specific local council websites as they will not be listed at above link.
