Fees collected contribute directly to the on-ground management of facilities, so the Walkerville Foreshore Committee can continue to provide these services to visitors.

Why can I not pay a deposit now and the balance closer to my booking date?

The Walkerville Foreshore Committee is committed to having competitive rates for our customers.

This means we can offer affordable and reasonable pricing.
