Refunds (if applicable)

If you return your item to a National Park Visitor Centre, we’ll inspect and process your refund immediately applied using the same payment method as was used to purchase. It can take up to 5 days for the bank to transfer the funds to you for card payments.

If you return your item to a National Park Visitor entre and you’d like a refund but don’t have your receipt or delivery note, if you can provide proof of purchase in another way such as a bank statement we'll issue an exchange at the current selling price.

Online returns - Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item.    We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.  If you are approved, your refund will be processed, a credit will automatically be applied using the same payment method as was used to purchase, within a certain amount of days.

Late or missing refunds (if applicable)

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again or credit card company.  It may take some time before your refund is officially posted.  There is often some processing time before a refund is posted (up to 21 days).
