National Park Camping

Along with "Free Stays", National Parks offer some of the most affordable accommodation for you and your RV hire. While most charge a permit fee, they are usually very cheap, if not free. You will need to check in advance on whether camping is actually allowed in the park you are visiting, to avoid disappointment and allow you to plan your time wisely.

The rules of each park vary by state, so we've created a comprehensive guide to get you started on your National Park exploration in your RV hire.

New South Wales

National Park Permits
Some National Parks in NSW offer free entry, but many of them require you to purchase an access pass. Some parks cost more than others (depending on the popularity of the park) and if you are planning on visiting several within the state, it is probably a better option to buy an Annual Pass.

Camping

If you fall in love with your surroundings and wish to stay a night or two in your RV hire, you will need to purchase a camping pass (as well as the entry pass). If you are planning to stay, it is best to check in advance on cost and availability.

National Park Permits
National Park Permits are not required for any parks in Queensland, with the exception of the Bribie Island, Moreton Island and Fraser Island Recreation Areas. These passes can easily be purchsed but do NOT include the cost of the ferry over to these areas from the mainland.

Camping

While you do not have to pay to enter Queensland's National Parks, you DO have to pay to camp your RV hire in them. The parks charge a fee, per person, per night, with a family charge option available as well. This fee is pretty standard across the entire state's National Parks and the price is extremely reasonable.

Keep in mind that you may need to book ahead.
