These parks and sanctuaries cover about 5.3 per cent of Victoria’s marine waters. They complement our land-based parks and reserves system, which is an integral part of our way of life and economy.

Vast knowledge gathered by marine scientists over decades helped identify the areas that are included in the marine national parks and sanctuaries. Using underwater videos, sampling and data analysis, they continue to add to what we know about our diverse marine environment.
