Parks Charge

The Parks Charge helps to maintain and enhance Victoria's parks, zoos, the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Shrine of Remembrance and other community facilities.

The charge is not related to water and sewerage services but water retailers collect it on behalf of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

In the area previously serviced by Western Water:

  • Customers in the Hume City Council area receive the Parks Charge from Yarra Valley Water.
  • Customers in the City of Melton area receive the Parks Charge from Greater Western Water through a different billing system.
