Vic Parks Camping Fee Proposal 28-Oct-2013 At 4:21:07 PM Mike Bee
To me the main issue here (as I posted in the other now defunct thread about this topic) is that day users aren't charged anything.

So suddenly the plan is to charge overnight users for all the maintenance of the parks, even though by proportion, we'd log possibly at most half the number of total visitor days in the park.

The idea of free entry to the parks is great, but simply trying to regain lost revenue by jacking up the camping costs is short sighted and somewhat greedy.

I wonder if real issue here is that the Vic Gov decreed free parks entry, National Park Service went "oh shit, please don't, we need the money", the govt went through with it anyway.
Now, given that National Parks can't reintroduce day use fees (they can't override an act of the govt), the only option left to them to increase their revenue is these proposed camp fee increases. Does that sound like a possibility?
