National parks visitors move to online booking
Visitors to kangaroo island national parks can now book campground sites and pay entry fees online
A new online booking system is creating a more convenient way to book accommodation in South Australia’s national parks.
Natural Resources Kangaroo Island (NRKI) Manager of Parks and Sustainable Landscapes Robert Ellis said the online booking system has been developed in response to customer demand.
“It also means people can pre-plan their camping holiday and` reserve their favourite camping spot well in advance of peak holiday times Mr Ellis said.
“The system has been trialled within the Northern and Yorke region since 2014, visitors have found the system convenient and easy to use.
We understand that some visitors are used to paying in cash, however the ‘iron rangers’ will be phased out before the 2016 summer holiday period.
“Ranger staff will be available to assist with online bookings, you can also visit the NRKI visitor centres.
Overall the new system is being well received by park visitors across the State, Mr Ellis said
As of October 2016 all campsites on Kangaroo Island will be available to book online, this includes Park Passes, heritage accommodation, and entry to the Flinders Chase National Park.
