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 would like to use a national park or reserve for commercial filming or photography:
You must apply at least 7 business days before you would like to start filming. Higher fees are payable for applications submitted in less than this time.
We keep a public register of filming approvals.
