A draft Joint Management Plan for Barmah National Park has been released for public comment.

The release of the draft plan marks a significant milestone for the Yorta Yorta people to be identified as partners in the ongoing management of the Barmah National Park.

The draft plan has been developed by the Yorta Yorta Traditional Owner Land Management Board in consultation with joint management partners Yorta Yorta Nations Aboriginal Corporation, DELWP and Parks Victoria, and sets out management directions for the park for the next 10 years.

The draft plan will be open for public comment until 6 October 2019.

All submissions will be taken into account in finalising the Joint Management Plan by the end of 2019 for approval by the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change.
