Is there a list of any sort which states all the areas in Aus requiring permits for entry. I don't want to find out that a permit is required at the gate and have to drive miles to get one. We will be visiting areas such as Frazer island sometime in the near future and would like to plan ahead. What is the normal procedure to obtain permits. Is it via information centres or Aboriginal councils or whatever? Thanks in advance. Kirk

Did you have a look at the Trek noted on this site Kirk? They cover most popular spots and outback routes and include comprehensive information about permits and how to go about obtaining them.

Look HERE.

Kirk, most (but not all) land on the HEMA maps shown as Aboriginal Land requires a permit. For some areas, permits are not available.

For NT see here:
http://www.clc.org.au/permits/

Fow WA, see here:
http://www.dia.wa.gov.au/Land/Entry-Permits/

Most tourist transit permits for the above States are available on-line and are free.
There is no permit required for Fraser Island.

You do need a permit for Fraser Island. See here.

It's a National Park permit

I stand corrected Lex M.
Must say I only thought about Aboriginal Lands, very narrow view.
I guess that raises "permissions" too, to enter private/pastoral lands if you wish to stray from public or "public access" roads.

Cheers,
Peter

Kirk
In Queensland you do not need a permit to enter any National Park but you will require a camping permit for the number of nights you are staying. You can book and pay online Here or by phone 13 13 04. Some of the more remote ones have self registration on site.
You will need to obtain a Vehicle Service Permit for Fraser, Bribie or Moreton Islands which allow you to drive on the beach, these are also available online.
