East Gippsland’s Emerald Link is a proposal to protect the last remaining unbroken forest wilderness area on mainland Australia, that connects alpine forests to the coast.
East Gippsland is the only place on mainland Australia with continuity of natural ecosystems from alpine to coastal landscapes. This continuity of intact ecosystems within the region is a rarity in global terms and makes East Gippsland internationally significant.
From snow-capped mountains to lush warm and cool temperate rainforests, all the way through to Victoria’s rugged coasts—these forests are of unparalleled natural beauty and importance – and, if valued and managed properly, would be a domestic and international tourism drawcard.
