NSW Parks discrimination against singles. 25-Jan-2019 At 10:11:14 AM hero

NSW National Park fees discriminate against solo travellers

I am asking solo travellers and sympathisers to email or call the National Parks Contact Centre and ask to abolish the newly introduced NSW camping fee structure.
Charging the single / solo traveller more is discriminative as it is knowingly and purposely treating them unfairly compared with couples or families.

NSW National Parks has changed their camping fees and are now charging solo campers the cost of two people. This is not necessary as most campgrounds have individual campsites of varying size and also larger fields that are shared. It is fine to stipulate a different price for a larger site versus camping on the shared space.

For example:
The cost for Cutters Camp in Mebbin NP is now $8 per car + $12.30 for 1 person, it is the same price for two people and only $6 for additional campers. A solo traveller will pay $20.30!
Rummery Park campground in Whian Whian State Conservation Area charges $24.60 to a solo traveller, again, the same as the fee for two people.

In the old system the solo camper already pays more because of the car fee and the pp fee add up to more pp. However at least there was some fairness in that system.
