Applications, licences and permits

A number of specific activities in parks and reserves require a permit or license, and in some cases fees apply.

In most cases you must obtain a permit to hold an event in a park. Contact Parks Victoria on 13 1963 for details.

In addition to the most common permits and licenses listed in this section, you may also find information about permits on some park pages where applicable.

Permits to conduct research in National Parks or under the Wildlife Act 1975 and Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 are available from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
