Our environement

Yarra Ranges has long been recognised for its natural beauty and diverse habitats. The combination of national parks, state forests, private gardens, and its proximity to Melbourne combine to make the area unique.

Some of Victoria's most environmentally important areas are located in the Yarra Ranges and play a significant role in attracting residents to the area. The mountainous landscapes and Yarra Valley contain significant remnant native vegetation, much of which is botanically and zoologically significant, providing important habitat for wildlife.
