Kings Park, Perth, WA

Kings Park occupies approximately 400 hectares of Mount Eliza overlooking the city of Perth and the Swan River. Situated only a few minutes from the centre of Perth, the Park has much to offer with its sweeping parklands, Botanic Garden, wildflowers (which are spectacular, especially in Spring), and native bushland (two-thirds of the park).

There are extensive city and river views with a panorama to the Darling Scarp. On a clear day, from the top of the DNA Tower in Forrest Drive, the Indian Ocean can be seen to the west. The magnificently sited State War Memorial is also one of several scenic vantage points.

The Western Australian Botanic Garden extends south of the State War Memorial and is planted with 1700 native species.

Extensive dual-use paths (pedestrian and bicycle, also accessible to wheelchairs) traverse Kings Park and bikes can be hired from the bicycle hire which operates from the main carpark adjacent to the restaurant, tearoom and snack bar.
