With a rich and diverse biotic environment, undulating dune system, extensive trail network, and proximity to both Perth City and the coastline, Bold Park is a favourite for schools, naturalists, researchers and sporting groups. The construction of a boardwalk to the summit of Reabold Hill and the installation of a new lookout and shade shelter, have increased the popularity of Bold Park as a potential wedding venue.

Booking details tend to vary depending on the type of event you are planning. Please read carefully to ensure that you get the best information possible for your booking.
