Waived park entry fees announced

The Australian Government has announced that park entry fees will be waived for visitors to Kakadu National Park as well as Uluru-Kata Tjuta and Booderee National Parks from 16 March to 31 December 2020. This important announcement means a great saving of $40* per person or $100* for a family of 4 during peak season. Visitors will still need to book a park pass however these will be available at no cost and can be booked HERE.

As part of the lease arrangements with the Traditional Owners of the joint managed national parks, a percentage of revenue generated from the sale of park entry passes is returned to Traditional Owners. Under this package, the Australian Government has guaranteed these lease payments to the park’s Traditional Owners. Visitors, including those travelling with commercial tour operators, will still be required to obtain a park entry pass, in order to monitor and report on visitor numbers and satisfaction, however these will be free of charge. Visitors and commercial tour operators who have already purchased a park entry pass or an annual visitor pass during the waiver period will be fully refunded. 

The fee waiver applies to park entry fees only. Other fees such as camping, licences and permits and event hire will remain in place. You can read more about park fees in the waived entry fees FAQ.
