Operation Columbus

Parks Victoria, in partnership with Victoria Police, have launched a dedicated compliance operation, Operation Columbus, targeting illegal activities within Bunyip State Park, Kurth Kiln Regional Park and surrounding areas.
Illegal activities, particularly off-roading, damage to infrastructure and firewood collection are having devastating impacts on the natural and cultural values of these areas. Parks Victoria have a legal and moral obligation to conserve and protect these areas in line with the National Park Regulations (2013).
It is important when planning to visit a park that visitors are aware of the activities that are permitted and where there may be restrictions. For example, Bunyip State Park has different regulations to nearby state forests. Dogs, firewood collection, entering seasonally closed areas and driving off road (leaving the road or track to drive on fuel breaks or through the bush) are not permitted within Bunyip State Park.
Operation Columbus will be continuing throughout the coming months, occurring on both weekends and weekdays.
