Hi can you purchase entry fee pass for all NT parks rather than paying at each park ie annual pass et al. Can't seem to locate the info on their website.

NT typically has honour system payments for camping in NPs.
Last I heard it was $3.25 pppn, so the incentive for offering discounts is pretty low :)
We volunteered in a couple of parks in the NT and the rangers reckoned that the camping fees collected were almost enough to pay for the toilet paper.

Entry to all NT NPs is free, so no discounts there either :)

They are the good guys......

Cheers,

Unless its changed, most parks don't have fees unless your camping?

Hairy, I thought there was a $25 per head entry into Kakadu and just assumed others would be the same. Hence my post

Kakadu and Uluru are National Parks under Commonwealth jurisdiction; they are not territory parks, hence the difference.

Oh that one day all national parks might be just that, and all run on the same rules, costs, fees etc. But that might be too simple!

In 2012, the only parks you had to pay to visit we're Kakadu and Ulara.

Little known fact is you can if you want to, present your Kakadu PARK PASS to the vistor centre staff with photo ID and get it stamped for another 2 weeks.

Thanks Phil; their information just says you can get the pass extended, without saying to what maximum. Sure beats three days at Uluru, especially with so much more the see in Kakadu.
