Passes and Permits for Crowdy Bay National Park
« on: October 06, 2009, 05:03:33 PM »
On top of the camping fees for Crowdy Bay National Park I have also read that a daily vehicle permit is required to be in the park itself.  As well as this do we require a Beach Permit if we want to do a little beach driving.  I thought I read that the Taree Shire hand these out (with a fee of course) if you think these are necessary, where should we try and get these from.

Can any locals give us a little more info on these vehicle permits and passes.

You need to go up to Diamond Head to the Office to pay site fees.Barney

Can we get the Vehicle Passes at Diamond Head as well?  Do you know anything about the vehicle beach passes?

You cant get a beach permit at the on site office. They don't police it either.

You can get them at Harrington - Ritchies Bait & Tackle as well as Dunbogan - Dunbogan Boat Shed. A seven day permit costs $22.50.

I have never worried about one. Been on there a few times though. Seen plenty of vehicles on the beach fishing ect and never seen a sticker/pass on the windscreen.

Give Port Council a ring, I am pretty sure my permit covers me to about half way down Crowdy Beach. I will check and let you know. Barnray

The map in the above link indicates that Hastings control about half the beach south of Diamond Head.B

I don't want to have to rely on getting anything from Harrington, as at this stage we could be arriving very late on Friday night. >:(  Hope I can make some arrangements to get away earlier :D, but this would involve leaving number one daughter behind for the weekend. :'(

I think it is classed a Hastings council not Taree as I first thought. So you would need to get it from Dunbogan boat shed not Harrington.

Dunbogan would only be a 20 min drive from Kylie's. (Guesstimate).

If it is Hastings shire it would cost $25.00 for a year pass.

Yep, thats correct....best bet would be to ask them at Diamond Head when paying for the site and gauge their reaction.....you may get an idea as to how hard they police it ..

When I was at Harrington in April I purchased a beach pass from the Caravan Park.  I can't recall what it cost me but it was around the $20 mark and they only issued it for the time I was at Harrington as I am going to be at Harrington over xmas I would like it to cover form now till then.  I am going to ring the council tomorrow and inquire about the pass and will post information when I know it.

I would reckon you would get away without having a pass on the beach.  If I get one I am thinking more about the need to have it for xmas because I am sure that is when it will be policed and I hate paying money to the government for no good reason... :)

Just spoke to the bait shop.  You can get a 7 day pass for $22.50 or a yearly pass for $45.00.

Obviously for most the $22.50 is the option.

I also got my National Parks vehicle pass today.  Decided to buy a yearly pass because it would cost me $28 for four days and given I will be back up there for xmas it was a no brainer really.... :laugh:
