How to book

You must book and pay for your camping permit before you arrive at the camping area. You can book in several ways:

Book well in advance for popular spots

The most popular camping spots are in high demand, especially during peak periods like public and school holidays. For these sites we recommend booking at least six weeks in advance. In some parks and forests you can book up to 12 months in advance.

The other option is to camp in an off-peak time, or at a less popular park.
