Our story

Warburton Environment was incorporated in 2008 as a not for profit, non government community organisation dedicated to protecting the forests of the Central Highlands of Victoria.

We are community members, advocates, nature lovers, friends, experts and leaders from Warburton and the Central Highlands of Victoria.

As an organisation we are dedicated to a progressive vision for our native forests and support an immediate transition of native forest logging to sustainable plantations and a future where our forests and environment are recognised for their true ecological and cultural values.


Statement of purpose


Facilitate links and networking, exchange and interaction within the community to support protection and restoration of ecosystems in the Central Highlands.


Provide a space and opportunity for refining and promoting the vision of, and transition to sustainable development – through all forms of learning and public awareness.


Develop strategies at every level in the community to strengthen capacity and action towards protection and restoration of ecosystems in the Central Highlands.
