Vic Ranges - Another Steep Price Increase 2-Feb-2004 At 4:04:03 PM Cliffhanger
Alas, another new change is coming. The Recenlty Introduced "Goods (Recreational Services) regulations 2003 are to be recinded by the State Government and a new "Fair Trading Act" Amendment to cover indoor climbing facilities and the like will be introduced.

This means.. you guessed it - New Waiver Forms for all to sign - again!

This also means increased costs to climbing gym operators in Legal Bills to write the new waivers, printing costs, data entry costs, filing and archive costs...

You know what that means... be prepared for another possible price hike at Victorian Climbing Gyms.

Feel free to email Mr Bracks at to express your feelings, or contact Consumer Affairs on and express your feelings to them as they seem to be the instigator of the next round of legal changes.

And the best bit is... after al these changes to legislation in Victoria, Insurance Premiums still went up another couple of hundred percent last year!
