We are the leading natural resource management (NRM) agency in north central Victoria for coordinating and monitoring NRM programs. We do this by employing best practice principles in managing and protecting the region's diverse environmental assets and striving to create a healthy and sustainable environment for the communities of our region. The area we manage takes in more than 13% of Victoria, and with a population of over 200,000 people; the region has become one of Victoria's most rapidly growing areas in terms of urban and agricultural activities over the last five years.
Our region is an area of diverse landscapes and land-use that covers 13% of the state. It is bordered by the mighty Murray River to the north, which injects life into the land around it, the Great Dividing Range and Wombat State Forest to the south and Mt Camel Range to the east. The region's main waterways are the Campaspe, Loddon, Avoca and Avon-Richardson rivers, which form part of the Murray-Darling Basin. The natural environment also features box-ironbark forest, threatened riverine grasslands, internationally-significant wetlands and other unique biodiversity. The region is also rich in Indigenous and European cultural heritage.
