Updated 8th July, 2020
Rules and regulations in response to the Coronavirus pandemic are changing regularly. Some states are progressing with their roadmap, including eased restrictions on travel and camping, whilst some still have strict limits in place.
We urge you to all keep up to date with travel guidance and health advisories issued by state governmental, law enforcement and health authorities. This includes rules around state and regional border closures, travel to remote communities, social gathering limits and physical distancing.
In many states, travel contrary to these directions may be punishable by imprisonment and/or significant financial penalties (to both hosts and campers).
Current bookings that do not comply with these current restrictions and measures should be changed or cancelled. Refer to our Natural Disaster Policy for cancellations.
Whilst camping is permitted in Victoria, metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire residents are back in Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions as of midnight, 8th July. People from these areas are urged not to travel.
For other areas in Victoria, gatherings are limited to 10 people maximum and social distancing rules apply. Shared facilities including kitchens and bathrooms can be offered but with thorough hygiene safeguards in place.
