Travel Brochure
Australia's vast continent offers a huge number and range of national parks that vary even within each state and territory. Some parks and reserves require payment of an entry fee. Sometimes there is an honesty box, but usually you will need to pay at the local rangers office, the local visitor centre or visit their website to pay online.

If you are a regular national parks user of a particular state/territory, it may be beneficial to purchase an annual pass.

Visiting the relevant national parks website will also provide information on campgrounds (especially if they are open or closed due to fires, floods or upgrading). Their website will also give you the low down on disability access, passes and permit requirements.

Following are links to campground accommodation, disability, permits and passes information with each state and territory national parks sites. These links may change, so just start from their home page, and drill down for the information. Please email us know if any links are no longer active.
