Calling All Friends, Young And Old

Parks Victoria

People decide to join a Friends group for all sorts of reasons, whether that be giving back and caring for nature, wanting to connect with their local community, or simply just an excuse to spend more time outside.

For Loretta Beliniak, it was a combination of all three that made her want to connect with her local group, Friends of Organ Pipes National Park.

Organ Pipes National Park is Victoria’s smallest national park, protecting more than 300 acres of land at the north-west edge of Melbourne, on Wurundjeri Country.

The park straddles the tranquil Jackson Creek and sits at the edge of one of the world’s largest ancient volcanic lava flows.
