$13.35 million to boost Victorian national parks assets

$13.35 million to boost Victorian national parks assets
May 5, 2014

Victorian Premier Denis Napthine has announced that the Victorian Government will invest $13.35 million in Victoria’s national parks.

Making the announcement while visiting the Grampians, Dr Napthine stated “of the $13.35 million in funding, $3 million will help ensure visitor sites and environmental works at the Grampians are restored to their former glory after the recent devastating bushfires.

“The bushfire burnt several significant tourist sites that are important to the local economy and this funding will help draw tourists back to the Grampians National Park and surrounding areas.

“As well as the Grampians, the $13.35 million investment in national parks will help Victorians get even more enjoyment out of other iconic Victorian holiday destinations, including Wilsons Promontory, the Otways along the Great Ocean Road and the Dandenongs.

“This additional funding means more park assets such as walking tracks, boardwalks, roads, bridges and picnic tables will be upgraded.”
