See the Victoria National Parks Map.
From the mountains to the sea, there are over 100 parks and reserves to explore and enjoy in Victoria Australia. Over thirty of them are National Parks, including Alpine NP, Croajingolong, French Island, Dandenong Ranges, Wilsons Promontory, and the Snowy River NP.
There are numerous activities to be had in these parks, including fishing, hiking, camping, horseriding, cave exploration and wildlife spotting. Not all the parks have these activities and do pay attention to fire dangers during the warmer seasons and the change-ability of the weather in the alpine regions.
The vast desert region parks also have their dangers, be prepared and take plenty of water and food.
