Welcome to the National Parks and Wildlife Service Parks Eco Pass program. The program supports operators to work with National Parks and Wildlife Service to offer exceptional visitor experiences across NSW national parks. 

Nature-based tourism is a major contributor to the NSW visitor economy. In partnership with National Parks and Wildlife Service, commercial operators play an invaluable role  in promoting our parks and encouraging visitors to appreciate, understand and enjoy them.

The Parks Eco Pass program streamlines licensing and creates consistency across NSW national parks. It offers:

  • one licence (obtained through one application) that allows your business to operate all your licensed activities, in more than one park
  • a single fee structure for the whole state
  • the ability to transfer your licence if you sell the business
  • licence terms of up to 5 years
  • a dedicated team and key contact point.
