New life begins for Cape Conran
Monday 30 July, 2018
From 1 August 2018, Parks Victoria will assume direct management of the Cape Conran Banksia Bluff campground and cabins and is focused on delivering a nature-based visitor experience in the coastal bushland of Cape Conran Coastal Park.
The Cape Conran Banksia Bluff campground and cabins, previously managed by a private operator, will complement the existing Parks Victoria managed visitor sites in Eastern Victoria including Tidal River at Wilsons Promontory National Park, Wonthaggi State Coal Mine, Point Hicks Lightstation Cottages and Buchan Caves Reserve.
Banksia Bluff in Cape Conran Coastal Park provides a variety of accommodation options including 135 camping sites, seven timber cabins and one group lodge that offers family and group accommodation, designed for comfortable rustic living. Guests will also have direct access to magnificent sandy beaches set amidst the beautiful bush setting.
Parks Victoria is investing in the local community through the recruitment of a management team of full-time and casual staff.
The ballot for campsites during the summer peak period will be open from 8 August until 21 August. To lodge an application in the camping ballot visit the Parks Victoria website. The summer ballot for the cabin accommodation has now closed.
For further information about Cape Conran Coastal Park or to book accommodation outside the ballot period visit the Parks Victoria website or call Cape Conran directly during business hours on 03 5154 8438.
Parks Victoria recommends visitors book prior to arrival.
