Fees reduced for more affordable camping in Victoria’s parks

Tuesday 15 December, 2015

Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water Lisa Neville has announced revised camping fees for Victoria’s parks, following a review across the state.

Fees to camp at sites classified in the ‘mid’ range will be reduced from $38.90 to $28 per site in peak season. This change will affect 48 campgrounds around the state, such as Borough Huts and Jimmy Creek in the Grampians National Park, and popular sites in the Great Otway National Park including Johanna Beach, Blanket Bay and Aire River West, and Bear Gully at Cape Liptrap Coastal Park. A full list of parks where fees have changed is here.

In addition, fees to camp at the popular boat based campgrounds at Bunga Arm in Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park will be reduced from $38.90 per site to $21 per site.

In total, there are 55 campgrounds around the state where fees have been reduced.

These changes follow the removal of fees at 70 basic campgrounds in 19 parks around the state earlier this year.

Reduced fees will apply for all bookings in the affected campgrounds from 18 December 2015. Parks Victoria will commence processing refunds immediately for campgrounds where fees have been reduced. As there are over 2600 refunds to be processed, this will take some weeks. All customers who have pre-booked to these campgrounds will be refunded for the reduced fees by Parks Victoria, and their bookings will remain in place. Customers do not need to contact Parks Victoria; refunds will be processed for everyone who has a booking in the campgrounds affected.
