The Kings Park Volunteer Guides are a dynamic group of 120 active people of varying ages and backgrounds. They all have a love for Kings Park and a desire to share this passion with visitors.

Kings Park GuidesSince their inception in 1984, the Guides have grown to accommodate changes in Kings Park and its visitors.

'Being a Guide has opened up a whole new world to me. I have learned so much and I get to spend time in Kings Park, which I love. I have made so many new friends who share my interest in wildflowers and in the history of this wonderful place. It is very rewarding.' Thelma

Join the Kings Park Volunteer Guides

All new Guides are to complete a training course; the next Guides training will be in March 2017 and March 2018.

Interviews are currently underway for prospective volunteers. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator to register your interest.

Members enjoy monthly meetings, presentations on a range of subjects and excursions.

A commitment of at least three duties a month is required - usually at least one in the Visitor Information Centre and one walk - all Guides are expected to do both.
