The South Gippsland Landcare Network (SGLN) was formed in 1995 and today is made up of 18 groups and over 800 families who manage and farm the land. The success of the Network is due to the inspiring contributions made by the passionate individuals and volunteers.

The Network area covers 270,000 ha and is bordered by the Strzelecki Ranges to the north and the Bass Strait to the south. The south-western half of the catchment is part of the Gippsland Plains bioregion, characterized by lowland coastal and alluvial plains with gentle undulating terrain which rises to meet the Strzelecki Ranges to the north.

Thanks to its high rainfall and productive soils, the South Gippsland area is an important dry-land agricultural region, with strong dairy and beef industries. The regional townships of Leongatha, Meeniyan, Poowong, Foster, Mirboo North and Korumburra are located in the Network.

The area also has high environmental value with large patches of coastal park, remnant vegetation and several significant waterways such as the Bass, Tarwin and Franklin Rivers. These rivers contribute to several important wetlands including Anderson Inlet and the RAMSAR protected Westernport Bay and Corner Inlet.
