Hi All,

I'm surprised that there's been no mention on the list of the fees to be 
introduced to enter Tidbinbilla.  The annual fee of $20 is very reasonable, but 
the single entry fee of $10 seems excessive to me - it looks like gouging the 
tourists.  Presumably the fees for coach passengers may also impact on the 
number of tourists as well (or at least on the costs for tourist coach 

It's annoying enough to be charged in NSW for entry to so many national parks 
with poor facilities (Monga for example), but a $10 fee to enter Tidbinbilla 
seems steep when at the moment there's little to see compared to what there was 
prior to the fires.

I'm interested to know what other locals (and non-locals) think about this.
