Latest info from PV re servicing of some campground and visitor sites due to industrial action.
Protected Industrial Action - Servicing of campgrounds and visitor sites in the Grampians National Park
Due to protected industrial action in parks across Victoria there may be limited servicing of quieter campgrounds.
Parks Victoria apologises for any inconvenience. We will work to minimise disruptions for visitors.
The campgrounds affected are Wannon Crossing, Boreang, Buandik and Strachans campgrounds. This may mean
Toilet paper is not replenished
Toilets may not be cleaned
Ash may not be taken from the BBQs
Limited general maintenance and clean up of campgrounds
Minimum service will continue at Jimmy Creek, Borough Huts, Smiths Mill, Plantation, Troopers and Stapylton Campgrounds and busy day visitor sites such as Mackenzie falls, Wonderland Carpark, Boroka, Mt Zero and Hollow Mountain.
Parks Victoria will continue to monitor areas to ensure visitor safety.
Bit of info for those contemplating a midweek climb or visit to Northern Grampians.
