Park Entry Fees

South Australia's parks and reserves (excluding Flinders Chase National Park) are free to enter on foot or by bicycle.

A small number of parks collect a vehicle entry fee to contribute to the conservation, management and improvement of the parks' visitor facilities. All vehicles must display their entry permit affixed to the windscreen of the passenger side of their vehicle to avoid a fine.

Camping areas and accommodation are available within many parks, with nightly fees payable in addition to the once-off vehicle entry fee. Camping is permitted in a single park for a maximum of five consecutive nights.

Entry and camping fees can be paid at:

  • the self-registration stations in many of the parks (Please bring correct money as change is not available)
  • park visitor centres
  • in person at natural resources centres during business hours.

Find entry, camping and accommodation fees for each park in the Find a Park section.
