Kings Park and Botanic Garden

Kings Park and Botanic Garden is visited by millions of people each year. With its remarkable expanses of unique bushland, tranquil parkland and botanic garden, the Park is the most popular visitor destination in Western Australia.

The total area of the Park is 406 hectares (roughly 1,000 acres) and is located adjacent to the Swan River and approximately 1.5 km from the Central Business District of Perth.

Kings Park and Botanic Garden overlooks the Swan River and Darling Range and showcases an outstanding collection of Western Australia flora.

It is a popular place for picnics, pleasant walks, cultural and ceremonial events.

Nearly two thirds of the Park is natural bushland containing 319 species of native plants and around 80 bird species. The balance of the Park is made up of superb cultivated gardens and open recreational areas.

Cultural Heritage:
Mount Eliza, (known as Kaarta gar-up by the local Nyoongar people), has always been a significant gathering point for local Aboriginal people and a focal point of European culture.

The State War Memorial was erected in 1929. The Avenues of Honour and special memorials throughout the Park are dedicated to those who died in the service of Australia.
