The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA) constantly delivers highly efficient and effective outcomes to Government and high quality services to the Western Australian community and the many interstate and international visitors who enjoy visits to Kings Park and Botanic Garden and Bold Park.
The 2015–16 year has been momentous for Parks and Wildlife. Many significant projects were completed, new initiatives embarked upon, milestones achieved and challenges overcome.
For the first time in the Island’s history, visitor numbers have exceeded 610,000 – an increase of almost 90,000 visitors for the year. Representing a 17% increase over last year, this outstanding achievement is the result of a whole of agency effort, and in particular a focus on destination marketing, combining the efforts of the Authority’s sales and marketing team with those of the Island’s major businesses partners.
With a record breaking 695,091 visitors in 2015-16, Perth Zoo is a leading visitor destination in Western Australia. The Zoo has opened every day since it began operating on 17 October 1898.
