Changes to our Parks

New walking trail fees

A new multi-day walking fee now applies for trails across Northern Territory (NT) parks.

The new fee will apply to:

  • Jatbula Trail
  • Tabletop Track
  • Larapinta Trail.

The fee will provide much needed revenue to effectively manage the cultural and biodiversity values of our NT parks. It will also help with:

  • maintaining infrastructure and servicing to trails including cleaning facilities and
  • providing reliable water supplies to trail users.

A normal day trip is still free

You can still take a stroll on any of our short walks.

The fees only apply to walks where you overnight on the walking trail.

It’s all the same price

The walking fees for adults or a child are one set price.

The classifications for a child are the same as the camping fees with a child classified as being from 5 years old to 17 years old.
