We were holidaying at Yamba recently and when out for a day trip in surrounds found all picnic area/national park entry incurred fees. (even if just passing through for quick look) Not unhappy to pay (suppose this helps with upkeep) however wondered if one fee covered you for the day or the area as each seemed to attract about $7. Does anyone know if you can get statewide permit for this sort of thing? Doesn't seem in the interest of promoting seeing the country.

Ross,
You can get 2 types. One to cover the whole state and the other to cover the state without the Snowy mountains.
Its strange how they charge. I lice in the Blue Mountains and they only charge to enter the eastern areas of the park, not the western. I hope I have not given them any idears.

The entry fee covers the park.

So , up that way , Yuragir Nat Park is the main one , the fee covers any of the sections of that park.

Yes , there is a permit. You can get either a particular park permit , a statewide permit (which doesn't include Kosi) , or a statewide inclusive of Kosi.

Its on the NPWS website.

NPWS fees are a big issue with me.

G'day Ross,

We've got a NSW Statewide NP permit which costs about $70 from memory and lasts 12 months. It gets you into all of NSW's NP's except for Kosci. Also doesn't include Jervis Bay which is not part of NSW. We have a separate permit for that, $25 for a year.

Just looked it up on the net and you can get a 1 park annual pass for $22, an all country parks (except Kosci) 12 months for $45 and an all parks except Kosci for $65.

See more.

Cheers,

Smocky.

Free !?!?

Not sure what you mean.

By the way, do you purchase your "I'm thinking about possibly, maybe visiting a public place in NSW" pass.

You'll also need a "I'm just passing through and promise not to stop" pass.

If they ever put a toll on the F3 I'm screwed.
