Who this site is for

DBCA.wa.gov.au is the corporate web portal for the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Following the creation of this department, over time it will centralize the corporate information for the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority, Rottnest Island Authority, Zoological Parks Authority and the former Department of Parks and Wildlife.

The website aims to meet the Government of Western Australia’s preferred accessibility standards. Please read our accessibility page for more information. The website has also been designed for usability with a mobile first approach to ensure the service is accessible on the platforms and devices you choose.

For consistency across government, the website conforms to the Digital Services Policy Framework Website Guidelines, and aligns with the ServiceWA (Digital) whole of government strategic direction and common digital services platform approach.
