About Us

Our vision is to create and provide world-recognised botanic gardens and parks and to inspire the conservation of biological diversity. Staff and volunteers work enthusiastically to make both parks the inspiring places they are today.

Kings Park and Botanic Garden, and Bold Park, are managed under the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998 and Regulations 1999.

The Act replaced legislation that had been operating for the management of Kings Park and Botanic Garden by the Kings Park Board since 1895 and to provide the authority to manage other designated lands, such as Bold Park (which was declared an A class reserve in August 1998). Kings Park and Bold Park are two of Perth's largest reserves, incorporating the State's Botanic Garden and important urban bushland areas.

The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority became part of the new Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions on 1 July 2017.

Our head office is in Kings Park on Fraser Avenue, Kings Park.
