Kings Park & Botanic Garden Reviews
This is a "must do" experience in Perth. Just glorious and the views are spectacular. The hop on hop off bus makes a stop there hourly. more »
impareggiabile la vista su Perth e Swan River.ottimo luogo per passeggiare, pedalare o semplicemente stare all'aria aperta more »unparalleled views of Perth and Swan River ... great place to walk, cycle or simply being outdoors
Wonderful park. Very impressive that 4.6km2 of real estate has been set aside as park so close to the city of Perth. Relaxing, abundant vegetation, gardens, lawns, seating. Picnic tables, cafe, terrific playgrounds for children. We only saw a small portion of it. Well maintained. Highly recommend a visit with or without children. ( Extraordinary population of crows / Ravens for an urban area !!! )
My family always take the opportunity to visit Kings Park whenever we are in Perth city. The grounds are so well kept, it is clean and picturesque. There are a variety of interesting areas to visit including coffee shops, restaurant, children's playground, the DNA tower, beautiful gardens, lake with fountains and more. This is a great place to exercise, walk, run, ride and enjoy the native vegetation and trees of Australia. There are public toilets, drinking fountains and many small tracks to investigate. Very nice monuments of remembrance and tablets showing sponsors for original planting of trees on entry to park, so cool. If your new to Perth check it out, you can spend the whole day investigating without seeing it all.
