NATIONAL PARKS AND NATURE RESERVES
Many of the natural attractions of the East Kimberley are managed as National Parks or Nature Reserves. The Department of Parks and Wildlife has the responsibility of managing WA's National Parks, Conservation Parks, Marine Parks and Nature Reserves.
Walk trails and camping areas are provided in most parks. For your safety please stay on marked trails and only camp in dedicated camp sites. Please also be advised that no pets are permitted within National Parks in the Kimberley Region.
In the Kimberley, visitor fees and camping fees may apply - these are listed below:
Book here for Purnululu National Park. All current National Park fee rates are available here along with Holiday and Season Park Passes. If you intend to visit numerous National Parks while in WA these passes will save you time and money.
No permits are required if you are travelling the Dampier Peninsula however there are often small fees to enter the Indigenous Communities.
All visitors who enter Kalumburu lands must obtain a valid Permit.
You can purchase your permit on arrival into the community via the Community Resource Centre or the Uraro Store. You will also need an Entry Permit for access to Aboriginal Land which you can obtain from here.
You do not require a permit when fishing off the land however you will require a current Western Australian Fishing license if you want to do any recreational fishing from a boat. The rules and licenses can be found on the website here.
