The Parks and Wildlife Service has announced the new Explore Parks website was now easier to navigate and more accessible on mobile devices.

In a statement, Parks and Wildlife said in addition that an upgraded Park Stay WA campsite booking system allowed for better management and gave campers more flexibility to cancel or change bookings.

“It is hoped the changes to the system will reduce the number of bookings that are made but go unused when campers do not take possession of the site on the booked date, arrive at the site late, or leave early,” the Service said.

Minister for the Environment, Reece Whitby said the improvements to the Explore Parks and Park Stay WA websites would help more Western Australians and visitors experience the incredible nature and culture of the State’s national parks.

“The Explore Parks website is intuitive and user-friendly, making it easier than ever to discover the unique and diverse range of attractions, activities and experiences on offer in our parks,” Mr Whitby said.

“Camping is a popular leisure activity and many of WA’s campgrounds are extremely popular and book out well in advance, particularly during peak periods, meaning no-shows cause frustration for campground hosts and other campers.”

He said it was accepted that circumstances could change.

“The upgrades that have been made to the Park Stay WA booking system will make it easier for campers to change or cancel their bookings when required, meaning sites can be easily re-booked and more people can experience the enjoyment of camping in national parks,” the Minister said.
