COVID-19 Update: We are taking bookings for Term 3 and Term 4 programs. All special events have been postponed until 2021. Please contact the Education Bookings Officer for further information.


Bookings are essential for all excursions to Kings Park, including guided and self-guided programs and special events. Bookings are also required for all informal visits by school groups (including picnics and playtime) to ensure your safety in an emergency.

Please note school and vacation care groups are only able to visit Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park in conjunction with a Kings Park Education program booking.  

We recommend making your booking at least one month in advance, due to the popularity of our programs.

Please take care when selecting your program and booking date as some, or all, of the fee may still apply if you chose to cancel the booking.
