David.. From my experience in Nat. Parks up here is that they cost about $3.50 per person per night, and they have to be purchased at the local Council. I am unaware that you can buy an overall permit for all parks.

Hi agree David,

If you stay in a NSW national park you are also up for the day fees as well, it obviously makes sense to get a yearly pass. But it still can cost you $200 to stay in a national park for a week if you have a couple of kids, I stupidly thought that what our taxes were for, but no, the user pays twice. Its the user pay mentallity gone mad. Regards Michael.

You'll pay $4pp/pn or $16 for a family.

You do NOT purchase NP permits from councils, they are obtained from self registration huts or from Parks offices.

There are no yearly permits available and now that state forests are under the control of EPA and NP, there are no free camping areas like there used to be.

Hope this answers the query.

There is a store in Brisbane City called "Naturally Queensland" it is my understanding that they can hook you up with permits ahead of time should you desire.

I find that the self registration huts are fine so long as you don't want to go somewhere popular on a popular weekend.

BTW it is an offence to be on Fraser without your permits (vehicle), you must buy them before hitting the island, you may well be slugged far more than the cost of te permit if you are caught, and you have no insurance!!.
