Rediscover Parks This Summer

Victor P Taffa

Environment Minister John Day today announced a series of Free Entry Days, beginning this Sunday, November 28, at selected National Parks during the Summer Period.

“Parks are places where people can connect with the natural environment and gain a real appreciation of the natural beauty of Western Australia.” Mr. Day said.

“By taking advantage of a free day, visitors can discover again the natural wonders that exist in their own areas.”

Details for free entry as part of the Rediscover Parks Campaign are:

  • Sunday, November 28, 2010 – Walyunga National Park;
  • Sunday, December 19, 2010 – Gloucester, Warren, D’Entrecasteaux and Beedelup National Parks;
  • Sunday, January 30, 2011 – Porongurup National Park;
  • Sunday, February 6, 2011 – Cape Le Grand National Park.

The Minister said the State Government was investing almost $25 Million this financial year in new and upgraded facilities to ensure the public had a memorable experience when visiting any of WA’s Regional Parks, Marine Parks and 98 National Parks.

“Many of these Park Improvement Projects are funded through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program and will see the construction of Roads, Campsites and Eco-Friendly Accommodation.” Mr. Day said.

Visitors can get great value from either a local Park Pass for $20 which provides unlimited entry into one park or a group of Local Parks – or an annual all Park Pass which provides entry to all Parks in WA for 12 months for only $80.
