Naturally Vic

Naturally Vic aims to promote responsible recreation and educate recreational users, such as campers, fishers and hikers, on best-practice guidelines to leave our great outdoors how they found it.

In Victoria, there is approximately 30,000 kilometres of Crown water frontage for recreational users to enjoy. Crown water frontages are a public asset and recreational use by the public is permitted.ย  Some Crown water frontages are licenced for riparian management purposes or to allow adjacent landholders to graze livestock on the frontage. Other Crown water frontage is unlicenced.

The Land Act 1958 was recently amended by the Victorian Government to allow camping on certain Victorian river frontages. These changes apply to Crown land where a licence has been granted to the adjoining landowner for grazing. Designated camping sites on licenced areas will be assessed as suitable for camping and opened by the State Government.ย There are different regulations for camping on licenced and unlicenced Crown water frontage.

Naturally Vic is your guide to understanding the new regulations that will allow camping on certain Victorian Crown water frontages.
