As one of the largest inner city green spaces on the planet, Kings Park is a wonderland of native wildflowers, West Australian birds and gorgeous city views. Its 400.6-hectare footprint makes way for both beautifully manicured grounds, as well as its wild bushland and on-site Botanic Garden. With a lofty location on top of Mt Eliza, Kings Park offers visitors spectacular views of Perth city and the Swan River.
From picnicking on grassy lawns and snapping shots of the city skyline to exploring the network of trails and attending summer concerts under the stars, Kings Park is a celebration of Perth’s nature-oriented lifestyle. It attracts more than six million visitors a year, with numbers spiking during September when Kings Park hosts Australia's largest wildflower show, a celebration of the park’s 324 native plant varieties.
Kings Park can be accessed via multiple entry points, with public buses servicing the most popular areas. It’s just 1.5-kilometres from Perth CBD, with bus trips taking just over 10-minutes. Cycling is a great way to explore the park’s sprawling grounds, with Kings Park Volunteer Guides also running free guided walks during high season.
Not only is Kings Park a beautiful space, but it’s also a cultural experience, asit is home to the State War Memorial and emotive Honour Avenues. The roads meander through the park and are lined with eucalyptus trees and sugar gums fronted by more than 1,600 plaques that commemorate the servicemen who died defending Australia.
