All operators with any type of commercial operations licence are issued with a Commercial Operator Handbook. This is a legal and informative document which must remain in the operator's vehicle together with a copy of the licence at all times when in lands and waters managed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.

The Handbook serves a number of purposes:

  • to educate and inform operators as to how they can help maintain and protect Western Australia's natural environment for the long-term benefit of the state's tourism industry
  • to minimise risks to park visitors
  • to outline opportunities that are available to operators who are already conducting, or wish to conduct, operations on land managed by the department
  • to clearly identify the licence conditions which apply to specific operations and areas by which operators must abide.

The Commercial Operator Handbook contains all licencing-related information on this site.
