Recreation lakes

This Summer will be different to any other, and we must work together to keep public land and waterways open and safe for Victorians to enjoy.

Under the Last Step - coronavirus roadmap for reopening, travel is permitted throughout Victoria and facilities at our recreation lakes, including campgrounds, are open. Being COVIDSafe is everyone’s responsibility. Be prepared and follow these measures at all times:

  • Stay at home if you feel unwell and get tested. Stay at home until you receive your test results.
  • You must carry a fitted face mask whenever you leave home, unless you have a lawful reason not to. Masks must be work when physical distancing is not possible or indoors (such as viewing platforms and toilets).
  • Avoid peak travel times and have a back-up plan if it’s too crowded.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least 1.5 metres from other people you don’t live with. This means keeping a towel’s length or 2 camp chairs apart, or staying in your car at the boat ramp while you wait to launch.
  • Keep a car’s width between you and the next camp site, or if there is no vehicle access permitted, the length of a tent pole or paddle.
  • Toilets are open with increased cleaning but be responsible for your own hygiene and bring your own sanitiser. Maintain good hand hygiene with regular handwashing or sanitising.
  • Before going boating, make sure your vessel is in good working order, you’ve packed your safety gear and you’ve checked the weather and ramp conditions before you head out at:
