The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA or Authority) manages Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park in Perth, Western Australia. The Authority sits within the Western Australian State Government portfolio of the Minister for the Environment. The strategic direction of the Authority is largely dictated by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Act 1998 and Regulations 1999.

On 1 July 2017, the BGPA became a part of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA), an amalgamation that also includes Parks and Willidfe Services, Perth Zoo and Rottnest Island. The BGPA remains a statutory authority with a governing Board of Management.

The Botanic Garden and Parks Authority receives significant funding from the State Government of Western Australia. Additional revenue is generated through various commercial activities including lease and licensing arrangements, all proceeds from Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop and fee-for-service activities. Corporate partnerships, grants and generous donations from individuals and organisations also provide critical funding support.

The Botanic Garden and Parks Authority sincerely appreciates the contribution of all supporters, volunteers, sponsors, donors and partners. More information is available in the community support section or please contact us.
