Victorian National Parks Camping and Accommodation Fees

Thursday 15 May, 2014

There are around 680 campgrounds in Victoria's parks and reserves, costing significant public funds to maintain and operate each year. These costs need to be recovered so that Victorians and visitors can continue to experience nature safely and with accessible and clean campgrounds and facilities.

Revised fare structures for camping in Victoria's national parks and reserves will be introduced from 1 July.

Concessions for school groups and means-tested concession card holders will apply. There is also a shoulder period in addition to the peak and off-peak seasons.

The user-pays approach will apply to 195 out of 680 of Victoria's campsites in national, state and coastal parks and reserves. The fares will be directed back into campsites across the state for safety and maintenance measures.
