In 2018, Parks Victoria conducted a pilot program and accompanying engagement to test new Eco Sleeper Pods (roofed accommodation units) with community members.

Eco Sleeper Pods were placed in two park locations (Albert Park and Point Nepean National Park) for people to view and provide feedback on. This included a display phase at Albert Park and Point Nepean National Park, as well as an overnight volunteer tester phase at Point Nepean National Park. A statistically representative sample of the general population in Victoria was also surveyed.

The consultation was designed to help Parks Victoria create a product which best suits the needs and expectations of visitors, industry and prospective users. The information from this engagement continues to help us when seeking designs for roofed accommodation in our parks, however designs are still sought individually for each park to meet the specific locations, weather conditions and regulations.
