Plan Your School Visit
We want you to enjoy your excursion to Kings Park. Please plan your visit carefully to make sure everything runs smoothly. Bookings are a must for all school excursions to Kings Park. If you need any help or advice, please contact the Education Bookings Officer.
Booking application and confirmation
Once you have made a school booking, you will receive an email confirming your excursion details. Please check the details carefully and contact us immediately if there are any discrepancies.
Teachers visiting Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park for the first time, must attend a free excursion induction session prior to the excursion date.
Please arrive at least ten minutes prior to your start time and ensure all students use the toilet facilities prior to the lesson starting. Late arrivals may cause your program to be cut short.
Know your drop-off zone
Check the map (simple, but vital advice). There are several drop-off and meeting points in Kings Park. Knowing yours before you arrive will take the stress out of your excursion. Call us on +61 (08) 9480 3638 or 0434 307 501 if you get lost.
Refer to the Kings Park Education map to plan your visit.
Close supervision of students is essential. Kings Park and Botanic Garden staff are not responsible for the supervision or behaviour of your students. Please refer to the Excursion Management Plan for appropriate ratios for each age group. You will receive this plan during the booking process.
What to bring
Hats, water bottles, sunscreen and suitable shoes - Stay hydrated and sun smart when outdoors and wear closed-in shoes.
Waste-Free Lunches - There are no bins in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park or the Western Australia Botanic Garden. We encourage all schools to take their rubbish away as part of our commitment to environmental conservation. Why not encourage your students to bring waste-free lunches? Pack your lunches in a covered container to deter birds or other wildlife.
- Wet weather gear - Applicable to the weather conditions.
- Most importantly - Bring a smile!
Bad weather and cancellations
Kings Park Education programs run in most weather conditions. As we are primarily an outdoor facility, we recommend students come prepared for the conditions on the day. Should poor weather be forecast on the day of your excursion, please contact the Education Bookings Officer as soon as possible to reschedule your lesson. In cases of extreme weather, Kings Park Education may contact you to cancel your booking.
Please note: Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park will be closed when a fire danger rating of Very High or above is forecast. This information is readily available in our Notices.
