In the very heart of Perth, just a short stroll from the City centre, you’ll find 400 hectares of tall trees, stunning bushland, lakes, sculpted gardens and picnic areas.
Kings Park is popular with both locals and tourists; it’s the best spot in town to watch a glorious sunrise over the City and the Swan River, snap an iconic photo and has a host of restaurant and café options including Frasers, Zamia Café and Stickybeaks.
Kings Park is a natural wonderland which contains the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden and is full of walking trails and running tracks surrounded by native plants, seasonal wildflowers and rich Aboriginal heritage.
There are over 3,000 different species of wildflowers on display at Kings Park with the best time to view them during the Kings Park Festival in September (learn more in the video below). See thousands of Western Australian wildflowers in full bloom and take part in dozens of free and fabulous events, displays, guided walks and talks, family activities and much more.
It’s also home to the States War Memorial and the Flame of Remembrance which hosts Perth’s biggest ANZAC Day dawn service every year. It is also home to the Place of Reflection where people who have suffered loss can seek understanding, peace, hope, healing and renewal (learn more in the video below).
Several buses (24, 26, 27, 103, 935) run every 10 minutes along St Georges Terrace to Kings Park and the green CAT bus departs every 8 minutes from the Elizabeth Quay Bus Station.
