Lake St Clair
January holidays at Lake St Clair

A schedule of increased services will be in place at Lake St Clair to cater for the influx of visitors during the January holiday period. 


In order to cater for our peak period and address criticism of the standard of the site last year, Council staff have arranged for:

  • 8x portable toilets to be cleaned daily and serviced weekly;
  • weekly rubbish collections. Additional services may also be conducted on Thursdays if required;
  • a large skip bin placed at Lake St Clair from 22 December 2017 to 29 January 2018 to cater for bulk camping items, and emptied as required;
  • a commercial cleaning contractor engaged from 16 December 2017 to 29 January 2018. Amenities will be cleaned twice daily during busy periods;


While there have been significant improvements to the site including a new caretakers’ cottage and the installation of a boom gate to provide better service to visitors, they are not yet complete and will not be operational until a date to be determined after the holiday period. Visitor fees will be payable to the caretakers’ caravan as is usual practice.
