NT PUBLIC LAND/NATIONAL PARKS HUNTING
In September 2015, after years of negotiations between the APDHA and the Northern Territory government, a trial was announced to allow members into permitted areas of selected national parks and reserves.
The trial proved to be a success and was expanded to include multiple parks/reserves.
In 2023, the APDHA and the NT Government signed an agreement to formalise hunting access for APDHA members as part of the territory's pest animal management program.
All APDHA access approved parks and reserves have different access conditions and these are made available to members at the time of booking but all permitted areas share these core conditions.
- All participants must be APDHA members. The booking must be made by a NT-resident APDHA member who must accompany hunters in the field. APDHA concession holders are able to participate as are APDHA family memberships.
- All applicants will be checked by NT Parks and Wildlife and possibly other agencies for prior records of misconduct. Parks may refuse participation at their own discretion.
- All permitted areas operate with a book in to hunt system. No booking, no access.
- Each permit area has its own set of conditions in place and these must be followed.
- The APDHA code of conduct must be adhered to at all times.
