We've built and upgraded 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.

Victoria’s Great Outdoors invested $44.6 million to build new and upgrade more than 70 campgrounds, as well as improve access to nearby recreational activities.

This is making 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.

This project is 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.

More affordable holidays in nature

We've made 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 is helping to reduce the cost of family holidays, while attracting more visitors to regional areas and supporting tourism and local businesses.
