Cussen Park is a bushland style park encompassing 33 ha of wetlands, woodlands and open space on the Northern outskirts of the town of Tatura in Northern Victoria. The land, which forms the Park is surrounded by industrial, residential and irrigated farm land.

The Park has been formed from the reclamation of wastelands by the Tatura community working closely with Council and Government Agencies. It now forms a valuable community asset for the Township of Tatura, providing educational opportunities, passive recreation and significant habitat for indigenous plants and animals. The Park is used to biologically treat Tatura’s urban stormwater, preventing poor quality water being passed onto the wetlands and farms downstream.

Cussen Park has a largely untapped eco-tourism potential, containing constructed wetlands, bird hides, observation decks and well developed paths and signs allowing people to closely observe many bird species otherwise not possible.
