Daily vehicle entry fees are charged at 45 of the more than 870 NSW parks and reserves managed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service. You may be issued with a compliance notice or penalty infringement notice if you visit one of these parks without displaying your vehicle entry fee payment or a relevant annual pass.

If you've been issued with a compliance notice or penalty infringement notice, it must be paid in accordance with the instructions provided on the notice.

Please note compliance notices issued by the following parks can now be paid online using your credit card:

  • Royal National Park
  • Kamay Botany Bay National Park
  • Georges River National Park
  • Bents Basin State Conservation Area
  • Cattai National Park

To avoid being issued with a compliance notice – buy an annual pass

If you're issued with a compliance notice by 1 of the above 5 parks, you can avoid paying the compliance notice by purchasing a NSW National Parks annual pass for the vehicle the compliance notice was issued. Purchase of the annual pass will mean you won't have to pay the compliance notice, and allow you unlimited motor vehicle entry to certain parks depending on which pass you purchase. The following conditions apply:

  • You must buy either a Multi-Park Pass or All Parks Pass.
  • You must buy the annual pass within 7 days of the compliance notice being issued
  • The annual pass must be for the same vehicle that received the compliance notice

Once you've purchased the annual pass, please email the proof of purchase of your annual pass, together with the corresponding compliance notice number, to
