Araluen Botanic Park is excited to welcome everybody back into the park this year for the 30th year of Its Yates Springtime. With more international and interstate visitors expected at the festival this year, Araluen Botanic Park would like to give notice on the traffic management plans to be deployed.
Araluen Botanic Park takes pride in taking care of the local community whilst servicing a growing number of visitors to one of Western Australia’s iconic parkland spaces. It is important for visitors to be aware, with the weekends attracting an increasing number of people, we have employed more traffic management controllers, and with limited parking space, you may be requested to park elsewhere, and walk to the Park. The busiest weekends tend to be Father’s Day weekend, which will be on September 3rd and 4th, and the weekends either side (August 27-28th, September 10-11th). Other busy weekends tend to be influenced by good weather.
Should you hold an ACROD permit, or have accessibility issues, please notify a traffic management officer as soon as you can, so they are aware, to direct you to suitable parking where possible.
To further inform our patrons, traffic management will erect a visual display sign on Brookton Highway. The signage will advise road users of current conditions, wait times and or if the Park is at full capacity to avoid traffic turning onto Croyden Road. If full capacity is reached patrons with pre-paid tickets will have priority entry.
The Tulip Festival in particular is always a special time at Araluen Botanic Park. Whilst increasing numbers of visitors have attended over recent years, we now expect that with more interstate and international travellers, and the onset of beautiful weather, the Park will welcome even more patrons. We appreciate your understanding and encourage visitors to attend during the week if feasible, and/or plan ahead if attending on the weekend. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for regular updates.
We look forward to seeing you at the festival this year.
