A line of smooth, pale tree trunks stretching their leafy fingers into Perth’s blue sky marks the first of many breathtaking moments you’ll have in Kings Park. No matter how often I go, the largest inner city park in the world dazzles me every time – I can’t help but stare. From horizon-bending views to a 750-year-old boab that travelled 3200 km to be there, free walking tours, Indigenous insights and stretches of native bush only five minutes from the city centre, it’s an oasis that delivers me sweet escapism from everyday life, all forgotten as I wander through its wildflowers.
