BGPA manages Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park in accordance with the BGPA Regulations 1999.
The Regulations cover a wide range of issues to ensure visitor safety and to conserve the managed lands and assets. BGPA may issue infringements for breaches of the Regulations and penalties apply.
Some actions that may attract infringements include but not limited to parking where not permitted, littering, damage to plants or wildlife, or dogs off leads.
- An infringement notice is issued for a breach of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Regulations 1999.
- The infringement notice is the first notice and clearly states the alleged offence, registration of the vehicle (if applicable) and the date the payment is due. The payment period is 28 days from the infringement issue date. This notice may be attached to the vehicle or posted.
- If payment is not received within 28 days, a final demand notice will be issued with an additional cost of $26.10 and a further 28 day payment period.
- If the final demand notice has not been paid by the due date or you have not requested the infringement to be reviewed (appeal or driver nomination), the matter is referred to the Fines Enforcement Registry (FER). This will result in additional fees and may result in the suspension of your driver's licence or vehicle registration. Refer to the Fines, Penalties and Infringement Notices Enforcement Act 1994 for further detail.
If your infringement has been referred to FER, please contact them directly:

Infringements are issued to the registered vehicle owner in the first instance.

To nominate the driver or person in charge of the vehicle at the time of the alleged offence, please complete and return the Nominate another driver form.
