About the Joint Management Plan

The Joint Management Plan (JMP) guides the partnership between the Gunaikurnai people and the Victorian Government in the joint management of ten parks and reserves in the Gippsland region (listed below). The JMP supersedes any former approved management plans for these parks and reserves.

The JMP has 11 components, being an Introduction, the Strategic Plan, and management plans for the 10 jointly managed parks and reserves (two of which are combined in one plan).

The Strategic Plan describes what the joint management partners want to achieve through joint management and outlines a long-term strategy for getting there.

The management plans provide the joint management strategies and actions that are specific to each of the 10 parks and reserves. They describe how the aspirations and strategic direction outlined in the Strategic Plan will be translated at an operational level within each jointly managed park and reserve. Each of the management plans needs to be read in conjunction with the Intro/Strategic Plan.
