Entry fees will come into effect at Lane Poole Reserve, Torndirrup and West Cape Howe National Parks and Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve as of 4 April 2016. The fees will be $12 per vehicle, the same as at the other 29 parks that already have entry fees.
The State Government has recently invested substantial sums through Royalties for Regions to upgrade facilities in Lane Poole Reserve and in the Albany area. Revenue generated by the new fees will be retained locally to assist with future park management, contributing toward the upgrade and maintenance of visitor facilities, enhanced management presence during peak times and supporting nature conservation efforts. It will go some way to ensure that the exceptional visitor experiences provided can be maintained to a high standard into the future.
Passes that provide unlimited access to all parks for twelve months are available at shop.dpaw.wa.gov.au, at Parks and Wildlife offices and selected visitor centres and retail outlets. Current pass holders need take no action at all and will receive even better value for money.
