Kings Park Education
Learning comes naturally
Kings Park Education provides hands-on, inquiry-based education programs for students from Kindergarten to Tertiary. Programs highlight the unique plants, people and places of Western Australia and the role we can all play in a sustainable future. All programs are delivered by qualified educators in line with the general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities set out by the Australian curriculum. Whether you are visiting Kings Park and Botanic Garden for a picnic, a play or an education program, please let us know you are coming to ensure your enjoyment and safety in case of an emergency.
Many Kings Park Education programs are being offered in new venues around the park in 2017, as Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park will be closed for a new development to be added.
For one year only, you will have opportunity to explore some of Kings Park's best-loved areas with special programs and venues. Choose from programs within the WA Botanic Garden (including Roe Gardens and the Pioneer Women's Memorial), the Saw Avenue precinct, State War Memorial precinct and more.
Thank you to the fabulous teachers of WA during 2016 for your interest in the Kings Park Education service and ongoing support to your fortunate students, who are our future environmental custodians.
