Abstract

Australia's box-ironbark forests and woodlands once covered 14 per cent of the State of Victoria on the riverine plains and foothills of the Great Dividing Range. But 83 per cent of the total original habitat has been destroyed and what remains of this significant ecosystem is now highly fragmented and vulnerable to further degradation. This paper outlines the innovative public participation process adopted by the Victorian State government and the outcomes of the inquiry. A subsequent compensation package for commercial operations disadvantaged by the proclamation of a series of new national parks is also discussed, as are the shortcomings of a process that can have little or no impac on what happens on private land
