Park visitor guides
The information in park visitor guides, and the smaller fact sheets, usually covers the location, layout of the main features, a good map, Aboriginal and other cultural heritage, wildlife, geology, facilities, safety, caring for the park, camping details and recreational opportunities including walk trails.
Many people like to read through a park visitor guide before arriving so they can better appreciate its natural and cultural values and have more time to plan where to go and what to do.
We have a growing list of guides and fact sheets that can be viewed online and downloaded to computers, tablets and mobile phones. The list is divided into Western Australia's five tourism regions and more localised destinations.
Check out our list of Park visitor guides.
When you visit a park, we advise that you use the latest editions of park visitor guides and fact sheets or current edition road atlases and marine charts. You can download many of the park visitor guides and fact sheets from the list at Park visitor guides. There are also a small number of maps on this list. Printed copies of visitor guides are generally available free of charge at park entrances and the nearest Parks and Wildlife Service offices.
