Changes to the management of Territory parks and reserves will help to protect, modernise and improve our parks while bringing the Northern Territory in line with other jurisdictions.
Changes from 1 July 2021 include:
- Introduction of an online booking system
- Increased camping fees (of up to $3.40 per night in 2021)
- Multi-day walking fees for some trails
The Online Booking System will streamline bookings and offer more certainty for visitors. It will also provide improved safety because there will be better information about where visitors are and provide visitor statistics for future planning and the growth of experiences.
Online bookings for campsites will be monitored by rangers and authorised campground hosts to ensure compliance with bookings.
