Stirling Gardens

Parks and Gardens

Take some time out on your next visit into the bustling city centre to explore the tranquil Stirling Gardens. Opened as a botanical garden in 1845, they offer beautiful shade, well-kept lawns, and an extensive range of plants and trees. There are also a number of interesting sculptures including the Ore Obelisk, kangaroo sculptures, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie and a serene water feature.

Stirling Gardens honours the name of Sir James Stirling who fought long and hard for the establishment of a settlement in Western Australia.

The Ore Obelisk is a modern memorial to the state’s progress and consists of a 45 foot oil drill pipe threaded with fifteen ores.

Enjoy wandering through the gardens and take the opportunity to ponder the relationship between art, culture, industry and nature.

Stirling Gardens are located at the corner of Barrack Street and St Georges Terrace, Perth.
