By Ben Tyers - 06 Apr 2018


Well, don’t actually throw away your tent, but this is certainly a great new way to check out Victoria’s amazing national parks.

Parks Victoria has just introduced a trial program called CANOPY which are Eco Sleeper Pods that will allow you to crash at national parks around the state in luxury, without harming the surrounding environment.

The pods have been designed by JAWS Architects + Pod Matrix and Troppo ArchitectsOscar Building using sustainable practices and materials.

The CANOPY pilot program will run from April to July 2018 in Point Nepean National Park.

Simon Talbot—COO of Parks Victoria—said:

“The Eco Sleeper Pods are custom designed for Victoria, with a focus on being environmentally-friendly, energy efficient and having minimal impact on the natural landscape.”


Parks Vic will be after feedback during the pilot program, about the Eco Sleeper Pod’s design, amenity, accessibility, and visual impact. You can leave feedback over at engage.vic.gov.au.

See you out there.
