Victoria's Great Outdoors

Better campgrounds, walking trails, 4WD tracks and visitor facilities for Victoria.

Investing in our great outdoors

Victoria’s Great Outdoors is investing $106.6 million in better campgrounds, walking trails, 4WD tracks and visitor facilities in Victoria’s parks and state forests.

We want to make spending time in nature and experiencing the health and wellbeing benefits of getting outdoors easier for everyone.

We’re doing this by providing more opportunities to explore our parks and forests. This includes building new and upgrading campgrounds, trails, tracks and visitor facilities, halving the cost of camping in national parks and supporting employment and volunteer initiatives to protect our environment.

These projects will create jobs, boost regional tourism and support local economies while ensuring everyone can enjoy more of our great outdoors.

Working together

Victoria’s Great Outdoors is delivered in partnership with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Parks Victoria, and working closely with Traditional Owners, local communities and stakeholders from planning through to delivery.

Supporting regional tourism

The Victorian Government is helping communities get back on their feet following the 2019/20 bushfires, coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and recent storms and flooding.

By building and upgrading visitor facilities throughout regional Victoria we’re creating jobs and supporting the recovery of local communities, small business and regional tourism.

Investing in visitor infrastructure provides a much needed boost to regional tourism by offering more opportunities for people to visit regional areas and enjoy the outdoors.
