App makes Victorian park visits easy

A free app that provides basic information for visitors about Victoria's parks and waterways has been launched by the state government.

Wonderful waterfalls, underground wonderlands and secret valleys - Victoria's parks and waterways are full of things to discover.

And now there's an app to help find them all.

The Parks Discovery App, launched on Tuesday, is packed with facts and stories, along with a directory of Victoria's most popular parks.

Environment Minister Lisa Neville said the free app includes basic information about where to go and what to do.

"It can be challenging to know where to start if you're not a regular visitor," she said on Tuesday.

Parks Discovery will help Victorians and tourists get the most out of national parks, she said.
