We aim to alert the public to major closures and service interruptions where possible. At certain times it is necessary to close roads and facilities within Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park. Operational and maintenance activities can impact the status of roads, carparks, paths and services in the parks and closures will occur during certain weather conditions.

Current major notices will be listed below. There will be times where notices will only be available on location. Please observe all signage and instructions by traffic attendants.

Visitors can review current State roadworks via the Main Roads website to assist travel planning to and from the parks.

If you are planning an event, you will reduce the chance of service interruption or inconvenience by making a booking. You may also like to view our Facebook page, subscribe to one of our newsletters or browse the media section and science highlights to keep up with everything that's happening in our parks.

Visitors are advised that a number of services within Kings Park and Botanic Garden will be unavailable over the Christmas and New Year period.
