All commercial film crews, still photographers, artists and sound recordists will need to apply for a permit to carry out commercial work in the park.
News and Current Affairs Television, newspaper and radio reporting and filming relating to the "news of the day", as determined by the Park Manager, do not need a permit and are not required to pay commercial filming, photography, artwork or sound recording fees. Such media groups are required to notify the Park Manager of their activities in the park and undergo a briefing prior to shooting.
