Doing business with us

With a beautiful and diverse portfolio of estate, Parks Victoria have opportunities for operators, private investors and registered community groups to do business with us across National Parks, Reserves, Crown Land, State Forest and Waterways.

Showcase the depth of your nature-based visitor experience and help work with communities to care for our environment, culture and heritage.

To ensure that the state’s natural assets are protected for generations to come, any activity on public land must be operated under a formal agreement.

Commercial and Community Activities

Event permits

Parks and reserves and bays and waterways are popular choices for staging public and private events in Victoria.

Mobile trading permit

Recognising that mobile trading operations can play a role in the provision of accessible services for visitors, park users and the local community, Parks Victoria is offering the ability to obtain a permit at mobile trading sites where seasonal services to park visitors will be of benefit.

Tour operator licence

Any person or business conducting an organised tour or recreational activity, for profit on Parks Victoria or DELWP managed public land in Victoria requires a tour operator and activity provider licence.

Filming and photography permit

For productions, weddings, commercial photography and drone usage Parks Victoria recognises the value that the industries bring to the state and local communities.
