Parks Victoria
Parks Victoria is the custodian of a diverse estate of significant parks in Victoria and of the recreational management of Port Phillip Bay, Western Port and the Yarra and Maribyrnong rivers.

To get the latest updates on fire, and other park issues within Victoria, go to the Parks Victoria website and follow the links under Park Management section.

The Parks Victoria website is packed with all the information you need, when planning to visit, experience and enjoy the many wonderful national parks, reserves and marine environments. Information include camping and permits, what's on, boating and ports, special places, Victoria's heritage, activities and guided tours.

If you are planning to stay overnight, some parks require campers to obtain camping permits. These permits can usually be purchased from the local Park Visitor Centre or in some cases obtained at the campgrounds. In these parks site availability may be on a first come, first serve basis. We suggest it is always better to try to obtain your permit in advance, so that you are not disappointed.

There is a Parks Victoria parknotes called ‘Camping in Victoria’s Park’ (pdf).

Any questions about parks and reserves in Victoria, can be made by visiting Parks Victoria website or by contacting direct.

Caring for our Parks

When using the national parks and reserve, always remember the following points:
  • Take any rubbish home with you.
  • All native plants, animals and landforms are protected.
  • Dogs, cats and other pets are prohibited within the parks.
  • Firearms are prohibited within the parks.
  • Camping is only permitted in designated areas.
  • Fires are only permitted in the fireplaces provided
  • No fires in the open on Total Fire Ban days.
  • Leave the park as you found it.

    It would be good if you took any stray litter that you come across with you.

The following is a great little mantra from the former Tread Lightly Australia:

Travel and recreate with minimum impact.
Respect the environment and rights of others.
Educate yourself, plan and prepare before you go.
Allow for the future use of the outdoors, leave it better than you found it.
Discover the rewards of responsible recreation. Education is the key to preserving the great outdoors.
