National Parks

Before heading into a national park, check if there are any alerts for the park, such as fire or closures.

There are some basic rules for national parks:

  • All animals and plants (both alive and dead) are protected and may not be killed, harmed or removed.
  • All cultural features in national parks are protected.
  • Camping or carrying on any commercial activities without a permit is not allowed.
  • No domestic animals are allowed (there are some limited exceptions to this such as guide dogs).
  • Feeding native animals is not allowed.
  • Mining is prohibited in national parks.
  • You will need a permit for using the parks for beekeeping, grazing, etc.
