Technology Park Bentley

History and museums
technology park, landmark, sightseeing

Technology Park Bentley is Australia’s second oldest technology park. It opened in 1985. In 1987 the Western Precinct was opened, housing the Australian Resources Research Centre (ARRC).

Technology Park Bentley is a location for organisations engaged in:

  • Information technology and telecommunications
  • Renewable energy and clean technologies
  • Life sciences


Some 110 companies currently operate at any one time in the Park, which is operating at maximum capacity, while all new tenants require government ministerial approval to locate in the Park. Tenants include Australian Institute of Technology Transfer, Curtin University, Horizon Power and the University of New South Wales, to name a few.

The park is home to iVEC's Pawsey Centre which is a high performance computing centre, named after the ‘father of Australian radio astronomy’ Dr Joseph Lade Pawsey (1908–1962). The Centre hosts new supercomputing facilities and expertise to support the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) program, geosciences and other high-end science.

Ownership and governance

The Park is governed by the State Government’s Industry and Technology Development (ITD) Act (1998), which regulates the nature of businesses that can operate within the park, ensuring tenants’ enterprises have a technological and innovation focus in research and development.

The Western Australian Government’s Minister for Commerce, through the Department of Commerce, manages the strategic direction and operations of the park.

Approximately 70% of the land is privately owned.
