Quarterly trip return reports

Parks Eco Pass licence holders must submit a trip return report to us each calendar quarter to indicate their level of business activity.

We send each licensed commercial tour operator a personalised quarterly trip return report spreadsheet template via email. Please contact the Business Development Team if you’ve lost yours.

You must submit a quarterly trip return report to the Business Development Team no more than 21 days after the end of each calendar quarter. The report must include details of the number of clients for that period and the fees due to the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service. You must submit a report even if there has been no activity: just enter ‘no activity’
