The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions is the largest provider of nature-based tourism opportunities in Western Australia and manages more than 28 million hectares of diverse and varied lands and waters.
Providing accurate park information, promoting acceptable and responsible use by all visitors to the estate and providing services to the tourism industry are important department functions.
The department offers support and advice to industry individuals and bodies offering commercial activities on its estate, in the areas of tourism and commercial filming.
A regulatory process map has been produced that clarifies the regulatory pathways that eco and nature based tourism businesses may need to navigate, depending on their activity or location. You can download a copy of this process map here and more information about the Eco and Nature-based Tourism 90-Day Regulatory Mapping and Reform Project here.
