Hi Humpback.
There is no concession rate in Qld for National Parks and unlike NSW there is no entry fee. Camping fees apply, either by booking on line, or in some cases, paying when you arrive. It is in your interest to look at the website to find out which parks require pre booking. https://www.npsr.qld.gov.au/parks/index before you arrive at the site.

Happy travels,
Cheers,

Mike

Most National Parks in Queensland do not require entry permits, however Moreton Island, Fraser Island, Bribie Island and the Cooloola Coast are exceptions to this rule and you must have a permit before entering, and a separate permit to camp. There are no concessions offered to Queenslanders so none for interstaters as well.

The only reason that NSW offers concessions to non NSW residents is because of the Australian Constitution prohibiting any State from penalising the residents of another state in a way that they do not penalise their own residents. This does not apply to the NT apparently because they are not a State.

The Northern Territory does not have entry fees on state managed parks either.

Yes Kevin, there are fees for the two federally managed parks, Uluru Kata Tjuta and Kakadu. The state managed parks are entry fee free, and camping rates low cost.

A $25 per person fee applies to all visitors aged 16 years and over visiting Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and lasts three days.

A $25 per person fee applies to all interstate and international visitors aged 16 years and over to Kakadu National Park. Pass covers fourteen days and can be extended.
