Mornington Peninsula Shire Foreshore Camping closes due to Coronavirus
Published on 20 March 2020
Following advice from health authorities and the risks associated with the rapidly evolving situation, the Shire will be closing the campgrounds managed by the Shire along the McCrae, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento foreshores from 5pm 22 March 2020. This includes all amenity blocks.
Campers are able to remove their camping equipment over a period of two weeks ending on 5 April 2020. Campers will be entitled to a full or pro-rate refund for the unused portion of their stay.
The Shire will also not be processing any new camping bookings for the remainder of the camping season (due to end 26 April 2020). Campers who cancel their future booking will be entitled to a full refund.
While we are disappointed the camping season has to end early, it is a necessary step to protect our community and do our part to flatten the curve of this pandemic.
