Parks Victoria is piloting CANOPY – Eco Sleeper Pods, an innovative new accommodation offering that will provide a roof over the heads of visitors looking for more creature comforts when camping.

Being trialled at Point Nepean National Park between April – July 2018, CANOPY has been specially designed to test innovative, temporary, low environmental-impact overnight experiences, and broaden the range of nature-based tourism experiences available to current and prospective park users.

Local residents and visitors to the Mornington Peninsula are invited to help Parks Victoria trial and review the pod concept and designs, which can be viewed from 10:30 am – 2:30pm Thursday to Monday, between 14th – 30th April.

The Eco Sleeper Pods have been designed by JAWS Architects + Pod Matrix and Troppo Architects + Oscar Building, using sustainable practices and materials.

Parks Victoria will be seeking feedback on the Eco Sleeper Pods’ design, amenity, accessibility and visual impact, as well as the visitor experience. People who provide feedback are also able to apply to be product testers in the sleeper pods as part of the trial while they are located at Point Nepean.

The CANOPY – Eco Sleeper Pods pilot program will run from April to July 2018. For more information on the pilot project, to provide feedback and to apply for the opportunity to stay, visit

Providing diverse options for accommodation in Victoria’s parks is just one of the ways Parks Victoria is connecting parks and people, enhancing people’s experiences in our unique and magnificent parks
