About Rokeby & Crossover Friends Group

We’re a group of locals dedicated to caring for our local bushland and always looking for ways to promote the value of our natural areas to locals, visitors and the wider community. 

The Crossover Bridge

The Rokeby and Crossover Friends Group is a community forum that aims to represent community interest in the use and protection of our local bushland.  The group is well supported by Parks Victoria, DEECA and Baw Baw Shire Council.  Our member base is made up of a diverse range of people – local residents, bush walkers, the Gippsland four-wheel drive club, Gippsland Miners and Prospectors Club, Warragul Trail Runners, local mountain bike riders, local horse riders, and local hall committees.  This diverse range of voices ensures that we approach projects with a range of perspectives and allows us to be more inclusive when working towards our objectives.

The group also has close links to the Rokeby Market and Hall Committee, local landcare groups, mountain bikers and trail runners.

Following recent installation of Management Vehicle Only gates, vandalism, firewood removal, hoon activity and dumping of rubbish has reduced.

Protecting and promoting our local bushland for future generations.  The social aspect of the group offers people the chance to connect with other locals, meet new people and stay up to date with the local community.
