VicNats are a lobby group inside the National Party. Often the more open-minded view of the Young Nationals has been at odds with that of the senior party.

The National Party welcomes the valuable contribution made by its Young Nationals. Young Nationals are committed to ensuring the organisation maintains an active presence in the day-to-day operation of the party.
