Stick to the limits

Small group sizes are best

The larger size of many school groups can have a significant impact on the environment. To reduce the impact of visitation, most parks have limits on the size of groups that can use areas like trails and campgrounds.

Each site will have its own group size limit based on a range of factors like toilet and washing facilities, how close the site is to sensitive environmental areas as well as safety factors such as the ability to respond to emergency situations at that site.

To find out the maximum group size at various sites call the Parks Victoria Information Centre on 13 1963.

Always stick to the limits as advised by Parks Victoria. Exceeding the limits breaches the DEECD Safety Guidelines and potentially opens the organising teacher up to liability for negligence in the case of an incident.
