National parks fee increase


The state's peak tourism body is supportive of the revised fee structure for Tasmania's national parks.

The state government is increasing fees to access national parks from September 1.

Day passes for an individual will rise by 66 per cent to $20 and vehicle passes will also increase by 66 per cent to $40.

A trip to Cradle Mountain for the day will cost 51 per cent more for an adult as prices rise from $16.50 to $25 and a family day pass will rise to $60.

The Tourism Industry Council says it's about getting more value from our interstate and international visitors when they return.

"The new fee structure will see interstate and international visitors pay their fair share, which will potentially unlock significant upgrades for national parks," said TICT CEO Luke Martin.

"Now is the perfect time to look at this so that when we welcome back visitors to Tasmania we will have in place a fee structure that means interstate and international visitors will make an even bigger contribution to looking after the places that make Tasmania so special."
