The first reservation for Fraser National Park was gazetted in 1959 with the appointment of a Committee of Management at the same time. The management of the park came under the oversight of the National Parks Authority (known as the National Parks Service 1971 - 1983).
Under the National Parks Act 1975, direct responsibility for the management of all national parks was assumed by the National Parks Service and the Committee of Management at Fraser National Park became an Advisory Committee (VA 1606). From 1983 the National Parks Service became a branch of the Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands (VA 1034). Since 1996, Fraser National Park has been managed by Parks Victoria (VA 4253) as part of Lake Eildon National Park.
