OverviewThe CANOPY – Eco Sleeper Pod pilot is an exciting initiative from Parks Victoria, designed to help protect our environment for the future by connecting more visitors with the natural beauty of Victoria’s parks.
The pilot program will run for three months.
During this time, we want to get feedback from visitors like you about the
design, amenity, accessibility and visual impact of the pods, as well as the
kinds of activities you’d like to experience.
Eco Sleeper Pods can help increase the accessibility of our parks. We’re seeking feedback from current and prospective visitors with a broad range of abilities. This will ensure we provide an inclusive experience that enables visitors with a disability, their families and carers to get the health and wellbeing benefits from visiting a state or national park.
