Kakadu entry fees scrapped

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 20 December 2004

Entry to Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory is free from today.

The Government announced the decision to scrap entry fees during the federal election campaign.

The manager of tourism and visitor services for Kakadu, Paul Styles, says park authorities are now working out new ways of delivering park information to tourists, a job that was previously done by staff at the now defunct entry stations.

"Certainly this is just a first stage in this plan of how we get information out to visitors and that will develop a little more over the next couple of weeks," he said.

"But we also have to keep in mind the park visitor centre at Bowali is still in operation with our information counter there manned 365 days a year."
