National parks and natural places provide opportunities to maintain physical and mental health and as such they will remain open while it is safe and appropriate to do so as Western Australia responds to COVID-19.
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) puts the wellbeing of its visitors, volunteers and staff as its number one priority. DBCA is closely monitoring the current COVID-19 situation, responding swiftly to Government health advice and putting extra measures in place to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors.
While national parks and other visitor facilities and attractions managed by DBCA remain open, some restrictions may apply to tours or attractions and there may be interruption to visitor services.
As this is an evolving situation, changes to this advice may occur.
Consistent with Government health advice, DBCA recommends ‘social distancing’ and good personal hygiene be practiced to protect the most vulnerable in our community. The best guide to measures you can take to limit the risk of exposure and transmission of the virus is the advice provided by the Western Australian Department of Health, which is available at www.wa.gov.au/government/coronavirus-covid-19
