Located on the corner of St Georges Terrace and Barrack Street, west of the Government House and north of the Supreme Court buildings, it contains a group of significant sculpture items.
Originally established by the Perth Vineyard Society in 1845 with Government approval, the Gardens were leased to Henry Laroche Cole for a ten-year period in 1846, and were eventually returned to Government control at the end of that period. In 1868 Enoch Barratt was appointed as the Government Gardener to tend Government Gardens (now known as Stirling Gardens), a position which he held until he retired in 1880.
It is one of a series of landscape features that is classified by the National Trust.
The statue of Alexander Forrest, the brother of Sir John Forrest, was constructed by Pietro Porcelli. It was first made in Guildford clay, then in plaster of Paris - sent to Italy to cast it in wax and finally in bronze. It was unveiled by Premier Walter James on 28 August 1903. It was moved to its current location in 1916.

Such an amazing place in the city, Absolutely gorgeous, calm and relaxing. Great place to meet and catch up with friends, take photos, have lunch or just chill out. One of my many places to go and relax when having a rough day or do photoshoot for friends.
Lovely well maintained gardens with plenty of shade. Perfect for lunch breaks or afternoon naps on the grass.
