Phillip Island Nature Parks has received the international Green Flag Award for 2013-14. The prestigious award acknowledges excellence in the management of parks against key criteria relating to public usage and benefits. The Nature Parks has received the award two years in a row and joins a select group of high quality parks across the world that attained the 2013/14 award.

Matthew Jackson, CEO of Phillip Island Nature Parks, expressed pride in receiving the award.

“We are delighted to have been successful in again attaining the Green Flag Award for Phillip Island Nature Parks.

“The award is an acknowledgement of our continuing efforts in environmental management and conservation, and testament to the high quality of our services that attract visitors from around the world.”

In Australia and New Zealand, 23 parks received the award this year, having been judged on their standards of safety, welcoming facilities, management of the environment and historical features, as well as recognising the role of parks as being great places to play and recreate. Parks were also judged on their sustainability practices and overall standard of management.

Parks Forum CEO, David Clarke, congratulated each of the managing organisations on attaining the Green Flag Award. “It is great to see so many new sites, as well as last year's winners, being nominated for the 2013-14 award.

“Winning agencies can confidently promote their parks and reserves as being the highest quality green spaces that provide a great experience for visitors. Local users, national and international tourists alike can be sure that they will be visiting an exceptional park,” he said.
