Thursday 2 April, 2015

Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water, Lisa Neville announced today the removal of camping fees for all basic camp sites in Parks Victoria managed parks.

From 2 April 2015, basic camping sites in 19 parks throughout Victoria will have no fees. Bookings for these sites will remain in place until 30 June 2015. 

Customers who have booked a campsite for any nights from 2 April 2015 and beyond will be refunded. All basic campsites will still require a booking (at no charge) up to 30 June 2015. Fees already paid will be refunded.

From 1 July 2015, basic sites will not require a booking and will be available on a first in, first-served basis.

Other campsite fees remain.
