Park passes & permits
You need a park pass to enjoy the beaches, landscapes and cultural activities of Booderee National Park.
Buy your park pass online for quick and easy entry to the park.
The money from park passes helps us improve and maintain visitor facilities, preserve the park’s natural and cultural values, run our free activities and support Booderee’s traditional owners and their community.
Using your park pass
Park passes are for a single vehicle and are valid for two days. There is no additional charge for trailers or caravans.
Regular visitors can buy an unlimited-entry pass valid for one or two years.
Please print your park pass and bring it with you to Booderee. Leave the printed pass on your dashboard with the QR code clearly visible so it can be easily scanned by our rangers.
You can enter and leave the park as many times as you like during the two-day period.
One- and two-year passes
Once you’ve bought your one- or two-year pass online, please print out the receipt and present it at the Booderee Visitor Centre to receive a stick-on pass for your windscreen.
If the Visitor Centre is closed when you arrive, please display the receipt on your vehicle’s dashboard until you can collect your sticker.
What if you can’t buy a pass online?
Pre-purchasing your pass online is the quickest and easiest way to start your holiday in Booderee.
If you can’t buy your pass online, you can purchase one from the entry station or Visitor Centre on your way into the park.
Free entry for walkers and cyclists
You do not need to buy a park pass if you are entering the park on foot or by bicycle.
Information for boat operators
Visitors arriving in the park by boat need to pre-purchase a park pass online.
If you are passing through Booderee waters without using any park facilities or services then you do not have to buy a pass.
Fees apply to camp at the Green Patch, Bristol Point or Cave Beach camping areas.
Visitors need an additional permit to perform some activities in the park, such as:
- operating commercial land, boat or diving tours
- doing research
- filming, taking photos or recording audio for commercial purposes (including artistic works)
- holding an event (including a wedding).
To check if you need a permit or to apply for one, please visit the Department of Environment and Energy website.
