In the 1950s only 0.5% of the State had been given conservation
protection, but that situation has radically changed.
There are now an impressive 49 national parks, 31 state parks, three
wilderness parks and 33 other parks protected under Victoria's National
Parks Act 1975. In addition, there are over 30 metropolitan parks, and
around 3,000 smaller conservation reserves offering various degrees of
protection under separate legislation. Together these ostensibly protect
over 3.6 million hectares, or about 16% of Victoria, and cover about 40%
of the remaining indigenous vegetation.
Most of these parks and reserves are quite small, however, and many
are fragmented - indeed, the 11 largest parks account for about
three-quarters of the total area reserved.
