Have you been camping or exploring in the Buckland Valley State Forest? The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) are developing a strategic master plan to guide recreation investment in the Buckland Valley State Forest, North East Victoria. The development process will support Taungurung Traditional Owner rights and aspirations for the Buckland Valley and the masterplan will be developed in response to community and land manager feedback to support a diverse recreation offer, increase amenity, access and enjoyment of the Buckland Valley State Forest.

How to get involved

  1. Complete the survey below. Tell us what you enjoyed about your visit and provide suggestions for activities or infrastructure that would support visitation. This feedback will inform the development of the Draft Masterplan.
  2. Provide comment on the Draft Masterplan early next year to direct investment and prioritise delivery of activities to support your use and enjoyment of the area.

This project is being funded by DELWP as part of the Victoria's Great Outdoors program focusing on giving people more opportunities to enjoy the beautiful scenery that regional Victoria has to offer.
