Where

Kings Park and Botanic Garden, WA, Australia

Kings Park is a 4.06-square-kilometre (1,003-acre) park located on the western edge of the central business district in Perth, Western Australia. The park is a mixture of grassed parkland, botanical gardens and natural bushland on Mount Eliza with two-thirds of the grounds conserved as native bushland. With panoramic views of the Swan River and Darling Range, it is home to over 324 native plant varieties, 215 known indigenous fungi species and 80 bird species. It overlooks the city as well as Perth Water and Melville Water on the Swan River.

It is one of the largest inner city parks in the world and the most popular visitor destination in Western Australia, being visited by over five million people each year.[1] The park is larger than New York’s Central Park which is 3.41 km². Besides tourist facilities Kings Park contains the State War Memorial, the Royal Kings Park Tennis club and a reservoir. The streets are tree lined with individual plaques dedicated by family members to Western Australian service men and women who died in World War I and World War II.

During September of each year Kings Park hosts Australia’s largest wildflower show and exhibition – the Kings Park Festiva. Rising above the Swan River on the city’s western flank, the 400-hectare bush-filled expanse of Kings Park is Perth’s pride and joy. At the park’s heart is the 17-hectare Botanic Garden, containing over 2000 plant species indigenous to WA. In spring there’s an impressive display of the state’s famed wildflowers. A year-round highlight is the Lotterywest Federation Walkway , a 620m path including a 222m-long, glass-and-steel bridge that passes through the canopy of a stand of eucalypts.
