Commercial filming in parks requires approval. We will usually issue an approval under the Filming Approval Act 2004 (FA Act). When considering applications to film, we take into account:
- environmental impacts the filming may have
- the benefits the filming may bring to parks, the public and the State of NSW in general.
If you want to use a national park or reserve for commercial filming or photography:
You must apply at least 7 business days before you want to start filming. If you don't we will charge a Short Notice Application and Assessment Levy Fee.
We keep a public register of filming approvals.
