Funding and Stakeholders
The Botanic Garden and Parks Authority receives its funding primarily from the State Government of Western Australia. Significant revenue is also generated through various events, activities, leases and licenses in place.
Revenue from State Government and that self-generated by the Authority through commercial arrangements is supported by generous donations from individuals, grants from a variety of organisations and sponsorship from corporations. This support is directed towards maintaining our high standard of horticultural and conservation practices, scientific research, visitor facilities and maintaining significant cultural and memorial sites.
The Botanic Garden and Parks Authority extends its most sincere appreciation to all of its supporters, volunteers, sponsors, donors and partners and specifically thanks and acknowledges the many organisations listed below for their generous support.
