Useful Websites

Below are some useful websites for Landcare members. For more local resources on a wide range of land management topics, have a look at the Education & Resources pages of the Connecting Country website.

LANDCARE

  • Victorian Landcare Gateway – The Victorian government’s Landcare website, administered by the state Landcare team. Lots of useful resources on all aspects of Landcare.
  • Victorian Landcare Council – The Victorian Landcare Council (VLC) was established in 2008 to present the interests of community Landcare to State and Federal governments, government agencies, local government and Catchment Management Authorities.
  • Landcare Australia Limited – The Landcare Australia site includes information for groups on how to engage corporate sponsors.

PLANT IDENTIFICATION

VicVeg Online – Database containing virtually all plants found in the Mount Alexander Shire (and North Central Catchment).
Atlas of living Australia – Database of all living things in Australia with excellent photographs.

A number of local plant identification pamphlets have been produced by the Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club and are available at the Castlemaine Market Building (Information Centre) and the Castlemaine Library.
