Save 50% on WA National Park passes with RAC

Western Australia is home to over 100 National Parks, from the beautiful Purnululu in the Kimberley all the way down to Cape Le Grande near Esperance. They include some of the most stunning places in the world; from pristine white sandy beaches with turquoise water to ancient gorges and waterfalls that will burn into your memory forever. The Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW) manage the national parks, and many of them require you to have a parks pass to enter.

What does it cost to enter a National Park in WA?

Its $12 per vehicle to enter a National Park in WA, or $6 for concessions and motorbikes. This is a separate cost to camping fees. However, you can purchase a Holiday Pass which gives you access to all national parks for 4 weeks, at a cost of $44.

The next option is to purchase an Annual All Parks Pass, for $88 or $55 if you are a concession holder. Essentially, if you are going to visit more than 7 National Parks in the same vehicle over a 12 month period, you are better off getting the Annual Pass.

You can find information on the passes, and buy them here - DPAW National Parks Pass

Want 50% off National Park Passes?

Recently I found out you can get 50% off the Holiday pass, and the Annual All Parks Pass. That means you can get an Annual All Parks Pass for just $44. If you visit more than 4 National Parks a year, you are winning.

On our 4WD trips we will often go through 3 or 4 National parks each time, so it makes sense to purchase the Annual Pass.

If you are an RAC member, you get access to this straight away. If you aren't, you can either take out insurance, roadside assist or pay $29 per year to become a member. If you do the latter and buy an Annual pass you still save money, and get access to a whole range of other discounts too.

To find out more about the 50% discount from RAC, have a look at this - RAC National Park Passes.
