More shelters for hire

New shelters for hire

In response to visitor feedback, we are increasing the number of hireable shelters at Plough & Harrow East, Plough & Harrow West and Lizard Log.

From Monday 21/12/15 there will be an additional 18 shelters for hire across the Parklands with prices starting from $75.00. All hireable shelters will continue to have Shelter Names (like Acacia or Paperbark) on them to make sure they are clearly identifiable to hire.

Bookings can be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, using our online bookings system where you can view shelter availabilities and book a shelter up to three months in advance.  As the Trust is self-funded, all hire fees collected from shelter hires go directly to managing and maintaining the Parklands andits facilities.

We will continue to have a large number of shelters available to use free of charge. These shelters will remain unnamed and continue to be available on a first come, first served, basis.

These new changes will be trialled for a three month period and any feedback can be emailed to
