About the Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority
The Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority (the Authority) was established on 1 December 2020 to deliver better protection and management of the iconic coast and parks of Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.
In partnership with our Traditional Owners, our role is to manage, protect, rehabilitate and foster resilience of the natural, cultural and heritage values of coastal Crown land and marine waters along the Great Ocean Road.
As a public land manager for the Great Ocean Road coast and parks, we manage a wide variety of public land from National Parks to coastal beaches to town foreshores. We also lead visitation policy and planning for the scenic landscapes along the Great Ocean Road to manage visitation ‘hot spots’ and provide a great visitor experience.
All revenue raised through our commercial endeavours is reinvested back into the coast to ensure the Great Ocean Road region can be enjoyed now and for generations to come.
About the Caravan Parks
Our eight self-managed caravan parks generate the majority of Authority revenue. We are the single largest accommodation provider on the Great Ocean Road with over 750,000 visitor nights annually.
Situated adjacent to some of the most spectacular beaches on the coast, our caravan parks offer a range of accommodation options for families, tourists, students and visitors.
