Note: DEPI Victorian Government Changes are now in force from July 1st 2014
Parks Victoria: Revised fees for camping and accommodation affecting 197 of the state’s 680 campsites

I posted an article earlier this year of pending changes to Victorian National Parks Act, they are now in place.

Please let me know of locations that now have camping fees enforced so i can change our listing status for these sites.

You can go to the mountain side or in parks or in place that you haven't been of.
