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

Guiding duties:

  • Lead Guided Walks daily

  • Vary the walk program through the year to include botanical, ecological, historical, cultural and scientific aspects of Kings Park

  • Staff the Visitor Information Centre (daily between 9.30 am - 4.00 pm in two shifts, with two Guides on each shift)

  • Lead 'Special Walks' (custom-designed) as requested

  • Contribute to park projects and research.

Join the Kings Park Volunteer Guides

All new Guides are to complete the Guides Training Course which is held every two years. The next Guides Training Course will be held in March 2015. Prospective volunteers are encouraged to contact the Volunteer Coordinator to register interest and discuss other opportunities in the interim.

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

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