You can find everything you need to know about conducting commercial activities, including filming, on lands and waters managed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife at Parks Western Australia.

The department is the largest provider of nature-based tourism opportunities in Western Australia. Parks and Wildlife manages more than 28 million hectares of diverse lands and waters.

Much of Western Australia’s nature-based tourism is focused on experiences in protected areas (national parks, State forests, marine parks and other reserves) and often includes interaction with the State’s unique wildlife.

Operators need to obtain a licence to undertake commercial activities and tours in protected areas.
