Park pass price dis­count

Pilbara News - - News -

The Depart­ment of Parks and Wildlife is slash­ing pop­u­lar na­tional parks pass prices — for the right cus­tomer.

DPaW has made a deal with in­sur­ance com­pany RAC to of­fer a 50 per cent dis­count on pop­u­lar park passes for RAC mem­bers.

DPaW di­rec­tor-gen­eral Jim Sharp said the aim was to get West Aus­tralians out en­joy­ing na­ture. “The State’s stun­ning 13 marine parks and 100 na­tional parks are world-renowned for their dis­tinct bio­di­ver­sity and scenic land­scapes,” he said.

“From the trop­i­cal north and pic­turesque marine en­vi­ron­ments of the Mid West, to the ma­jes­tic karri and marri forests of the South West and rugged coastal peaks of the golden out­back, WA’s en­vi­ron­ment of­fers some­thing to suit ev­ery­one, from bush­walk­ing and moun­tain bik­ing to bird watch­ing and pic­nick­ing.”

Rev­enue from park pass sales will be used to con­serve the parks and main­tain visi­tor fa­cil­i­ties.
