Beach vehicle permit fees changed on the 1st of January, 2019 for four-wheel drive and recreational vehicle access to Stockton beach in the Worimi Conservation Lands. This is the first time in over ten years that the vehicle entry fee has changed, aligning the fees with nearby beach driving reserves.
The permit provides vehicle access to over 22 kilometres of beach and 350 hectares of dune driving in the Recreational Vehicle Area, in one of the largest coastal dune driving areas in NSW.
A range of permits are available:
- 3-day permit $33
- Annual permit $88
- Annual pensioner permit $44
- Annual RVA $88 (for conditionally registered quads/motorbikes)
