I would say not as we are in a different country. She would need to apply for one here for parking and as she is a tourist she would not be able to do that.

Sorry but she can't. To have an Acrod badge (Disabled sticker) in Australia, you need to be an Australian Citizen or Resident and have registered with the relevant authority for the state that you live in.

​Does this mean I can use mine that was issued in the NT in Cairns.I fly early tomorrow morning and pick up my hire car at 09.30.Only there a week but if I could use my badge it would help a lot.
