HVP’s plantations are our workplace and a vital timber resource and economic engine for Victoria. We recognise the plantation also can be used for many recreational activities.

To access the plantation, please complete a Visitor Induction, required for all access and then complete one of the following:

  • Human Power Pass
  • Event Permit
  • Film and Photo Permit or
  • Operator Permit

Once a request has been submitted it is then reviewed to check whether it is a permitted use. Permits are also required to be assessed for their compatibility with operations and management activities that may be occurring within the area. Once these checks have been completed applicants will recieve a response from HVP.

There is no fee for a Human Power Pass.

Permits fees do apply for commercial and non-commercial requests and permits issued.
