The area that we care for is approximately 250,000 hectares, and extends from Ararat towards Beaufort, south-west to Lake Bolac, across to Glenthompson and up along the Grampians National Park eastern boundary to Moyston.

Our Mission

Supporting the community to care for the environment in a productive landscape.

“A healthy Hopkins River system starts with us”

The Hopkins River begins as small tributaries between the Grampians and Pyrenees ranges. The river winds 271 kilometres through the basalt plains of Western Victoria to the Southern Ocean near Warrnambool.

The Hopkins River plays an important role for biodiversity. The river provides habitat for species like platypus, Australian grayling, and short-finned eel.
