We're building and upgrading campgrounds across Victoria

Camping is a great way to relax and unwind with family and friends, connect with nature and discover the beauty of regional Victoria.

We’re providing new and upgraded facilities at campgrounds to make your stay more comfortable.

Victoria’s Great Outdoors is investing $44.6 million to build new and upgrade campgrounds. We are building 30 new campgrounds and upgrading more than 30 others as well as improving access to nearby recreational activities.

This will make camping in Victoria’s parks and forests easier and more enjoyable so everyone can experience the health and wellbeing benefits of spending time in nature.

Upgrades include:

  • new toilets blocks
  • picnic shelters and tables
  • fire pits
  • improved car parking,
  • camping platforms
  • improved information signage
  • better site access
  • improved roading and drainage
  • new and improved walking tracks

Campground projects are being delivered in partnership between the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action and Parks Victoria, working together with Traditional Owners, local communities and stakeholders.

Making holidays in nature more affordable

We’re making holidays in nature more affordable by investing $12.5 million to cut camping fees in half in Victoria’s national parks, while camping in state forests remains free of charge and dog-friendly.

This will help to reduce the cost of family holidays, while attracting more visitors to regional areas, supporting tourism, local businesses and creating jobs.
