The Department of Sport and Recreation is the lead agency responsible for the implementation of government policy and initiatives in sport and recreation. A key role of the department is to contribute to the healthy lifestyle of Western Australians by increasing physical activity in the community through sport and recreation. On 1 July 2017 the Department of Culture and the Arts, Department of Sport and Recreation, Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor, and the local government and office of multicultural interests functions of the Department of Local Government and Communities amalgamated to establish the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. The Department of Aboriginal Affairs' Aboriginal History Research Unit has also joined the new ​Department.
