The operation and use of drones/RPA in Wellington Park, regardless of size, is prohibited without a permit from the Trust. This includes drones used for recreational, commercial, scientific and management purposes. Permits will only be considered for persons with an Australian Remote Pilot Licence and public liability insurance that includes relevant RPA conditions.
Drones and RPA use may conflict with the Trust's obligations to protect Park values and its duty of care to Park visitors. Drones/RPA can impact on visitor experience, disturb wildlife and infringe upon the privacy of other Park users. The Trust routinely monitors social media platforms for evidence of illegal drone use in the Park and issues infringement notices where appropriate.
