Bold Park bushlandVenues for hire

As Bold Park is primarily a bushland conservation area that offers a taste of a wilderness experience close to Perth, the park is largely undeveloped. The Western Australian Ecology Centre houses a large meeting room, the Tamala Room, which is available for hire for workshops and community meetings.

In the same precinct, the historic Perry House is home to the Wildflower Society of WA and the adjacent Peregrine House is the office from which Birds Australia WA conducts its activities.

With spectacular views of the surrounding suburbs, boardwalk and shade shelter, Reabold Hill is becoming increasingly popular as a wedding venue.

Prior written permission by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority is required to conduct an event in Bold Park or for an organised group activity of over 30 persons.

In Bold Park, where the most popular activity is bushwalking, seats have been placed at intervals along the more popular walk trails, generally at scenic vantage points, to provide the opportunity to pause or take a rest.

Lighting

Please note that the majority of the park does not have night lighting and we recommend visitors carry a torch after dark.
