Education and Training

Kings Park and Botanic Garden, and Bold Park are iconic Perth landmarks steeped in history, culture and natural beauty. Managed by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority, staff are committed to promoting appreciation and understanding of Western Australia’s unique biodiversity and motivating visitors to join with us in its conservation.

All forms of education by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority are based on three simple 'take-home' messages:

  1. Kings Park and Bold Park are special places
  2. Western Australia has unique biodiversity
  3. You Can Do It! - a call to environmental action for ecological sustainability.

Limited access to Naturescape creek

A section of Paperbark Creek in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is currently closed until Tuesday 20 November. This is a precautionary measure following regular water quality test results.
