West Australians can celebrate World Parks Day this Saturday (18 September) with free entry to the State's National Parks.
Environment Minister Donna Faragher said World Parks Day focused on the theme of ‘Parks for Life’ to highlight the role of parks in people’s lives and encourage them to enjoy and appreciate their local green spaces.
“WA has an internationally recognised system of national parks, marine parks, marine reserves, nature reserves and conservation parks as well as State forests,” she said.
“WA has some of the most diverse land and seascapes in the world when it comes to native plants and animals. For example, Stirling Range National Park and Fitzgerald River National Park each have more than 1,800 species of native plants which is greater than the number of native plants found in Great Britain.”
So get out and enjoy our National Parks.
