Victorian tourism operators say camp fee increase will protect natural assets

23 /10/ 2013 Comments are Closed

The state’s peak tourism body says the fee increase for camp site hire in national parks will continue to preserve Victoria’s natural attractions and improve the visitor experience.

The State Government today released a Regulatory Impact Statement outlining the costs associated with delivering camping facilities in Victoria’s national parks and the investment required to ensure these parks provide a quality visitor experience.

Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) Chief Executive Dianne Smith says, “The application of fees to camp sites in Victoria’s national parks is a move that the tourism industry is comfortable with.

“The fees are modest increases which will help with maintenance of some of the state’s best natural attractions and improve the quality of the camping experience at our national park camp sites.

“These changes will not affect Victoria’s love for camping; in fact, they will ensure the experience campers have is in some cases, even better.

“We applaud the State Government for planning for the future funding of our camp sites and are happy the money raised will go back into the national parks.”
