Environment and Community
Our role is to regulate game hunting in Victoria by monitoring game harvest levels and ensuring they don’t exceed the annual rate of production. This ensures game hunting is sustainable, game is shared equally and non-game species and habitats are protected.
It is also important that game hunters and landowners do their part to help manage the land for improved biodiversity, enhanced game habitats and increased game populations.
The new Wildlife (Game) Regulations 2012 came into effect on 11 September 2012. The information on this website is being updated to reflect the new regulations. Some of the current information may relate back to the previous regulations.
Please check Game Regulations 2012 to ensure information is current, this page outlines the changes that have come into effect. Please telephone 136 186 if you require any further information.
