Kings Park and Botanic Garden

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Landmarks and Buildings Natural Attractions Parks and Gardens

One of the largest inner-city parks in the world, Kings Park and Botanic Garden covers 400 hectares of Perth’s heart with serene natural bushland and sculpted gardens. It’s perched high on the crest of Mount Eliza, making it a top spot to take in sweeping panoramas of Perth’s city skyline and Swan River.

Pack a picnic or barbecue and take the 15 minute walk to Kings Park from Perth’s centre, or hop on a free CAT bus. Pick up maps and brochures from the Visitor Information Centre, take a free guided walk or enjoy a self guided tour.

Join the locals for a coffee at one of the cafes, or lunch and dinner in the fine dining restaurant. Relax while the kids enjoy the playgrounds. Take a walk through the treetops along the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, stopping to learn about local fauna, Indigenous culture and European history.

The first park to be designated for public use in Australia (in 1872), Kings Park is also home to the State War Memorial and State Botanic Garden. It showcases 1,700 unique native species and a dazzling display of wildflowers in spring, celebrated with the annual Kings Park Festival in September.
