Parks Victoria is developing a Business Case for future government investment for the Tower Hill State Game Reserve (the reserve).

Tower Hill is a unique natural feature, an important habitat for plants and animals, a place of significant Aboriginal cultural values, and a much-loved community asset.

Parks Victoria is committed to protecting these values while exploring new options to revitalise the reserve.

Parks Victoria is undergoing necessary assessments to understand ways to better preserve the reserve’s natural features while catering for an expected increase in visitation to the region.

We are exploring the feasibility of ideas to revitalise the area and to develop the Tower Hill Activation and Linkages Business Case.

The local community, park users and stakeholders are invited to have their say on potential options for the area.

The public consultation closed on Wednesday 16, October. Parks Victoria thanks everyone who took the time to contribute their feedback and ideas. All of the feedback received is being analysed and a consultation findings summary is being prepared.
