Upwey Corridor

The Upwey Corridor rehabilitation project commenced in 2006.  The Upwey Corridor has been recognised as important from the early days of National Park planning.  The 1990 Management Plan for DRNP and its review in 2002 maintained this recognition. 

Parts of the area have been recognised as a Site of Zoological Significance and studies have found a range of native birds and animals – Swamp Wallaby, Wombat and Echidna.  The Superb Lyrebird is found in the eastern part of the area and the Olive Whistler and Yellow tailed Black Cockatoo are regionally significant.  The Sooty and Powerful Owls are both rare in Victoria and are seen in the area.
