Gabo Island Accommodation

Parks Victoria is investing in updating the visitor accommodation on Gabo Island. While work is undertaken, new accommodation bookings will not be accepted. As the island is remote and subject to extreme weather, the anticipated completion of the accommodation update is December 2023. Bookings made prior to November 2022 are being honoured and booking holders have been contacted.
Day visitors can access the island during this time but must adhere to all safety and directional signage.
The accommodation update will be undertaken in consultation with heritage experts and delivered with consideration of all the environmental and cultural heritage sensitivities of this unique site.
