Discount annual passes with vehicle registration renewal

Did you know you can get a $15 discount on a 1-year All Parks Pass or 1-Year Multi-Parks Pass when you renew your NSW vehicle registration?

This discount is only available online through the Service NSW registration renewal webpage. Look for the link when you reach the 'Finish' page, after re-registering your vehicle online.

Can’t be used in conjunction with any other discounts. Normal annual pass conditions apply.
