  • A $25 fee will apply to each booking that needs to be amended after it has been confirmed in writing.
  • Permanent Hirers that pay the entire season bookings 7 days in advance of the season commencing receive a 10% reduction on the scheduled fee.


Once applications are assessed a BPOINT payment link will be emailed. Upon payment received a booking confirmation will be provided. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, EFTPOS or credit card (Mastercard and Visa) at Council's Customer Service Centre, 200 Miller Street, North Sydney. Alternatively, a cheque may be mailed to the Customer Service Centre, North Sydney Council, PO Box 12 North Sydney, NSW 2059. Please do not mail cash.

Council charges a 0.75% service fee, inclusive of GST on transactions using Visa & MasterCard (credit, debit and prepaid).

Public Liability Insurance

Everyone must have insurance. If the booking is on behalf of an individual, then you will need to pay an additional fee of $173. If the booking is on behalf of a company, then you don't have to pay for Public Liability Insurance. However, you must include a copy of your Certificate of Currency (at the time of lodgement).

The policy must be for no less than $20 Million. Please be careful, some policies may not cover your group activity if it's held away from the office.
