  • Really nice park to walk around and to see the gardens and fountain. Have a drink in the cafe or an ice cream. We found it a lovely half day in the park with great views of the river and city.  more »

  • Beautiful place. Kings Park is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks. It is rich in Aboriginal and European history, contemporary culture and offers innovative design, displays and services. Kings Park has an international reputation for scientific research, leading horticulture, conservation and public education. Kings Park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora. Two thirds of the 400 hectare park is protected as bushland and provides a haven for native biological diversity.
  • A great destination on its own. Offers the best view of downtown Perth. Themed gardens offer unique experience. Great for jogging, cycling or just strolling around. Few cafes and restaurants available around the park. No issues with parking. Recommended to anyone visiting the city.
