The rangelands of north- western Victoria were used for production of wool for up to 150 years. They are now to be primarily used for nature conservation and recreation. This change in use of the land has brought with it a need to adjust management to protect the conservation and recreation values rather than the values of its agricultural production. This paper covers the conservation /recreation values that are to be protected, threatening processes to those values and the means by which protection is afforded to the land.
