Make it a park day out, it's free

SENIORS get in free!

In celebration of Seniors Week, the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is offering seniors free entry to all NSW national parks on Wednesday, March 18.

Head of NPWS Sally Barnes said NSW Seniors Card holders can enjoy free entry to all 45 fee-charging national parks and reserves statewide.

“Seniors Week is a great opportunity for seniors to explore the natural wonders and fantastic outdoor activities in our national parks,” Ms Barnes said.

“Seniors in communities across the State make important contributions to the management and conservation of our nature reserves and national parks.

Many work side by side with our rangers in bush regeneration projects; others willingly volunteer their time on advisory committees.

“We'd like to recognise and thank these people for their work,” she said.

To take advantage of the free-entry offer, seniors should present their Seniors Card at national park entry stations, or place a photocopy of the card on their cars dashboard when visiting parks with pay and display stations.
