Companion Card NSW

A Companion Card may be issued to people with significant and permanent disability, so that their carer can access tours and attractions in NSW national parks – free of charge.

Read more about Companion Card NSW

The Companion Card program helps people with lifelong disability to participate more actively in community activities and events happening in NSW national parks and reserves, without incurring the cost of a second ticket for their companion.

Companion Cards are issued by your State or Territory Companion Card program. Once you hold a Companion Card, you don’t need to apply for an exemption with NSW National Parks.

Simply present your Companion Card at park entry stations and a free ticket will be issued. At parks with pay and display, or self-registration, please leave your Companion Card on the car dashboard (clearly visible).

Please note

  • Companion Cards do not provide free entry for carers or vehicles if the card holder is not present.
  • Australian Disability Parking Permits and NSW Mobility Parking Scheme permits are not valid for park entry fee discounts, concessions or exemptions in NSW national parks.
  • If you have an Australian pensioner or veterans card you may be eligible to apply for an NPWS Concession annual pass.
