Victoria's Agriculture Minister Mary-Anne Thomas has sought to allay farmer fears over the opening up of Crown land leases to camping.
Last week, the government announced it was investigating up to 27 possible camping sites - new regulations are set to come into effect on September 1.
The plan drew receive extensive backlash from farmers and sparked a protest at Parliament House earlier this year, with landowners expressing concerns ranging from biosecurity to insurance.
Ms Thomas told a Rural Press Club of Victoria webinar AgVic had advised her any threats to biosecurity, from riverfront camping, were "extremely minimal".
"If farmers have concerns about the behaviour of people camping on Crown land, they need to raise them with the authorities," Ms Thomas said.
Farmers could report concerns through the Victorian Fisheries Authority's 13FISH hotline.
Fines of up to $1500 could be handed out to offenders, doing the wrong thing.
"Anyone that has a concern about the behaviour, or any issues with campers, can call that number, which will allow access to authorised officers," Ms Thomas said.
"But of course, the police can always be called at any time.
"Campers will be expected to behave appropriately, and the regulations will outline that."
Ms Thomas said Crown river frontages had always been accessible to the public.
"The thing that's changing here is that ability to camp overnight, this was an election commitment, made before the 2018 election."
She said the legislation, permitting camping, was supported by all parties, in the Parliament.
"Now we are working on the regulations, to deliver this commitment," Ms Thomas said.
"I have been very pleased to work closely, with a range of stakeholders, I've talked regularly with the Victorian Famers Federation and met farmers on the ground.
"I know our announcement was very well received and I am sure when we announce the areas were camping can take place, and the regulations that go with it, will also be very well received."
