Licences, permits and authorities are required for a range of activities in department-managed areas. These are issued under legislation including the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984, Biodiversity and Conservation Act 2016 and Rottnest Island Authority Act 1987. Other activities including flying a drone over national parks and other conservation areas, and installing, owning or using moorings in marine parks and reserves require permission to be obtained from the department.
Depending on the type of event and number of people, bookings may be required for events held on department-managed land. More information is available on the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority, Rottnest Island Authority, Perth Zoo and Explore Parks websites.
