Kings Park and Botanic Garden has recorded a 20 per cent increase in event bookings in the past 12 months, affirming its popularity as an ideal location for social and celebratory events.
According to recent Annual Report data, almost 2,000 bookings were received during the 2012/13 financial year. This accounts for around 98,000 visitors attending booked events and functions in Kings Park. Social and corporate functions, community group events, weddings and school groups were the most common bookings.
Demand for bookings is particularly high during the warmer months and holiday periods. Bookings enable Kings Park to plan for visitors in different areas of the Park, and are required for exclusive use of any venue and all groups in excess of 25 people.
Fees and charges vary according to the nature of the function, chosen venue, length of booking and number of guests. They are set in order to preserve Kings Park and Botanic Garden's natural environment and to assist us in ensuring that your function is successful. They cover administration costs and maintenance of venues, essential facilities and infrastructure.
Bookings can be made up to one year in advance and utilise a range of venues including outdoor grassed areas and outdoor pavilions. All bookings are subject to conditions of use to ensure public safety and the ongoing amenity of the Park for all visitors.
