The Authority cannot reserve parking. Vehicles are not permitted to leave the road or parking areas; stop or park in No Parking or No Standing zones.

The organiser is booking a venue or area in a public space, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While the Authority endeavours to ensure that the area or venue is in the same condition as at the time of booking, there can be events, works or maintenance required that are outside of our control. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure suitability of the location prior to the shoot.

Students (school, TAFE or University) are not required to pay a fee but must make a booking giving all specific details pertaining to the shoot and the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority must be acknowledged in the credits.

Your written confirmation, together with your receipt, must be held by you for the duration that you are present in Bold Park.
