Remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS/drones)
Parks Victoria has regulations that govern the use of RPAS. These regulations build on Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) guidelines to allow the safe use of RPAS.
Our regulations consider RPAS to be aircraft, and vary depending on who is piloting or operating the RPAS.
Recreational use of RPAS by the general public is prohibited on Parks Victoria managed land. The recreational use of RPAS is not permitted under Parks Victoria regulations and visitors should refrain from flying them or they may receive a penalty infringement notice.
Commercial filming on Parks Victoria managed land requires a permit, including to use RPAS. Commercial filming permit applications are outlined here.
