Personal gatherings

Gatherings of less than 100 people do not require approval from the Burswood Park Board, provided the following by-laws and mandatory guidelines are adhered to:

  • There shall be no damage to Burswood Park grounds and facilities, including any installations that penetrate the surface of the Park.
  • No areas of Burswood Park are to be sectioned-off (with ropes or otherwise).
  • No structures are to be erected on the Park, including but not limited to marquees, bouncy castles, animal farms and water slides.
  • Attendees are to be considerate of, and must not cause disruption to, other park users.
  • Attendees are not to locate adjacent to the dual-use pathways.
  • No power is provided by the Burswood Park Board and generators must not be used.
  • No vehicles may access Burswood Park. All small equipment is to be walked or carried into place.
  • No alcohol is to be sold on Burswood Park grounds.
  • No catered functions by private caterers are permitted.

Failure to comply with the above guidelines will lead to further action by the Burswood Park Board and, where necessary, the WA Police will also be notified. 

It must also be noted that the Burswood Park Board is not liable for any personal damage or injury to guests or members of the public caused by guests.  This liability remains with the individual/s.


Weddings at Burswood Park

A landmark for visitors and a popular venue for weddings, the graceful structure of the Swan Shell soars above the surrounding parklands. It is freely available for public use, but bookings are essential.  

Before booking your special day with us, learn more about our terms and conditions of hire.


Corporate events

Corporate events are not permitted within the park grounds, without prior approval from Burswood Park Board. To seek approval to host your corporate event, contact us for details.


Charity events

Burswood Park Board is a strong supporter of charity events, including the Telethon Community Cinemas, Walk to Cure Juvenile Diabetes, Have-A-Go Day, the Perth Children's Hospital Walk, HBF Run for a Reason and many others.

These events typically attract thousands of people and, as such, require the endorsement and management support of the Burswood Park Board to be hosted on Park grounds. 

An application to hold a community or charity event must be completed and submitted by the event organisers at least 16 weeks prior to the event.
