    (1)     The Administrator may make Regulations, not inconsistent with this Act, prescribing matters:

        (a)     required or permitted by this Act to be prescribed; or

        (b)     necessary or convenient to be prescribed for carrying out or giving effect to this Act.

    (2)     Without limiting the generality of subsection (1), the Regulations may:

        (a)     make provision for or in relation to the licensing, control and regulation of zoological gardens, menageries and aviaries;

        (b)     establish a local management committee for any park, reserve, sanctuary or area of essential habitat, and make provision as to the composition of the committee, the appointment and terms of office of its members, its meetings and proceedings, its functions and powers and the manner of their performance, and any matters of an incidental or ancillary nature;

        (c)     prescribe fees, charges or royalties payable under this Act;

        (d)     prescribe the information to accompany an application for a permit; or

        (e)     prescribe the terms or kinds of terms that may be included in management programs and co-operative agreements.

    (3)     Where a plan of management proposes the use for a specified purpose of a particular part of the park or reserve to which the plan relates, the Administrator may by regulations restrict access to that part to such extent and in such manner as appears to the Administrator to be necessary or desirable in connection with its proposed use, and may in particular confine access, or grant preferential access, thereto to a class or description of persons specified in the regulations.

    (4)     Subsection (3) does not derogate from the general power of the Commission to make by-laws with respect to access to parks and reserves as mentioned in section 71(2)(j) except to the extent that by-laws under that section must not be inconsistent with any regulations.

    (5)     The Regulations may not declare a declared weed, as defined in section 4 of the Weeds Management Act , to be protected wildlife and any plant declared by the Regulations to be protected wildlife ceases to have that status on it becoming a declared weed under that Act.

    (6)     The Regulations may:

        (a)     provide for the payment to the Commission of a prescribed amount instead of a penalty that may otherwise be imposed for an offence against this Act and for the service of a notice relating to payment of the amount on a person alleged to have committed the offence and the particulars to be included in the notice;

        (b)     prescribe maximum penalties of 100 penalty units or, in the case of a body corporate, 500 penalty units for offences against the Regulations; or

        (c)     designate an offence against the Regulations as a regulatory offence.
