    Having spent the last 3 weekends riding through the national park near my house (Ku-Ring-Gai National Park) I am amazed at the awesome bits of road that are available for New (and experienced) riders. The daily charge is $11 for entry but this adds up quick when you consider that a full annual pass costs $65 and gets you into every national park in NSW.

    At first I felt that $11/$65PA was a bit steep but after seeing the quality of the roads (Especially on West Head Road - beautiful fresh smooth tarmac) it's worth every cent. I cannot recommend this pass or these roads enough for anyone wanting to either practice their corners, gears and breaking or just for a great ride with stunning views and available rest stops.

    So far I have only done West Head Road and Bobbin Head Road, both of which are great but I am always looking for new rides close to home or further afield. Sugestions welcome!

  2. Alternatively, get up and on the road early.

    I've been told that they only "man" the toll booths from 9.00am.

  3. $65 isnt to bad,are you sure.Its $195 into the snow for a car anual pass.One pass one vehical.You cannot swop them.Money hungry buggars.
  4. That doesn't sound right.. It used to be $40 for annual excl kos, $50 inc kos.
  5. You can get a second pass for bikes/cars registered at the same household address for half price too! great for me and my partner and our flatmate who all have bikes :)

    We recently had a picnic at Lane Cove National park and they wanted $7 PER BIKE... and there was three bikes plus the cars (which are the same price!) total rip off... I agree its totally worth an annual pass! We ended up parking the bikes outside the park and getting a lift in one of the cars!

    $65 for all standard NP's does sound right, I was looking recently on their website.
  6. As far as I can see its the $65 pass.The Snowy pass was more than doubled a couple of years back.They seach the car parks if you get through after the entrances are unmanned down the snow.Its a shame the we are passing through descent work at Kurringai,be a great back way to The Old Rd.Might even be worth the $65
  7. I think the $65 is a complete rip off, in that it's the same price cars pay.

    We can't take 5 or more people on a bike.
