Ranger Marcel photographed this Rose Robin at the Fishholes, a water hole in the bed of the Surrey River, where it flows through the southern section of Cobboboonee National Park. The Rose Robin was happily taking a cool bath in the river on a warm day, while also keeping a watchful eye on the camera. Rose Robins are usually very active, flitting from tree to tree, often not returning to the...

Agnes Falls is a spectacular waterfall that cascades over a series of rocks with a 59 metre drop, making it the highest single span waterfall in Victoria. This is a great destination for families as it is just a short 200 metre walk from the carpark to the Agnes Falls lookout, perfect for little children’s legs that can’t go too far! There is a delightful picnic area which is an ideal spot for...

This globefish is ready for its close-up! You can see globefish (or pufferfish as they are also known) in the Southern Ocean. They favour sheltered reefs, and can often be seen in weedy areas around jetties and pier piles. When threatened, they greatly inflate their bodies causing their spines to stand-up and they become spiny "globes". This one was photographed at Wilsons Promontory Marine...

Mild weather conditions this week will see us conduct a large number of planned burns across the state. From now until Friday, we are aiming to complete over 100 planned burns – which means you may see or smell smoke.

This is a statewide view of the planned burns we currently have in progress (green), scheduled for the next 24 hours (pink) or scheduled for the next 10 days (blue).

Thanks...

This colourful mollusc is known as a Batwing Slug (or Sagaminopteron Ornatum) and can be found in seas and oceans around the world, including the Southern Ocean. They have tiny internal shells and can often be found feeding on grey sponges. To swim they flap their fleshy lobes in a slow bat-like motion, which often catches the attention of divers. Thanks to John Turnbull for this excellent...

This Easter weekend the parks and campgrounds will be filled with people enjoying the great outdoors.

The cooler evenings are also a great time for a campfire, if permitted in the park you are visiting. If you do have a campfire, remember they can easily become bushfires if not handled responsibly. Never leave a campfire unattended and always use water, not soil, to put it out before you...

Active by day, this sun-loving species feeds on small invertebrates. They tend to have a ground colour that varies from olive to dark brown, with a dark stripe down the back and a pale stripe running from behind the ear to...

The first snow of the season has landed on Mt Buffalo. The sprinkling of snow is plentiful enough to build a snowman and enjoy some snow play. Dingo Dell Café and Visitor Centre are open today and will be a great place to enjoy the snow. Ranger Michelle advises visitors to drive carefully as roads in the area are icy in places.

Looking for day trip ideas for over the Easter holidays? Organ Pipes National Park is just 20km north west of Melbourne CBD and offers a great place to spend an afternoon. Despite their structured appearance, the organ pipes were made by the violent forces of nature when molten lava from Mount Holden cooled and cracked. This took place around a million years ago, when this area was part of an...
