It is a majestic walk through an amazing Australian parkland and bush with a city right on the parks edge. The end result is nothing short of stunning. And come spring time, Kings Park in Perth, Western Australia, delivers again as the wildflowers come into season, full of colour and full of life.

It is a sight you need to see for yourself. The clear blue skies that comes with a Perth spring makes the views of the stunning Canning and Swan review a pure delight. Then there is the city, standing large and above as it neighbours this magnificent Kings Park. The city is so close you can almost touch it.

So gather the family, bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it one of the most beautiful parks in all the world. There is plenty to do, so let’s take a look.

Walk tall at Federation Walkway

Don’t look down because it is quite a drop. But if you can brave the heights, then you will love this skywalk with the twin rivers and beyond in the background and the gardens and bush directly below.

 

War Memorial

Give respect for those who truly deserve it. Read the names of those who served in the World Wars. It is appropriately situated in the Kings Park viewing area with great sights of Perth City and The Swan River to gaze upon. On the 25th of April, ANZAC day dawn service at Kings Park is packed with people showing their respect for the war veterans.

Dine out or Dine in

Bring your own picnic lunch because you will find many suitable areas to drop a rug and enjoy your sandwiches and coffee. Or dine in style and let the chefs at Kings Park look after you at the Botanical Café. For those on a budget there is also the King Park Kiosk to dine out on with plenty of snack food available.

Exercise is not an option at Kings Park, whether you are meaning to or not. With many paths and trails available, why not get fit as you stroll around the bushland and take in some Australian nature.

Wildflowers

September brings the start of spring, warmer weather, clear skies and the wildflowers begin to colour as Kings Park is truly at its colourful best when winter fades and spring time comes out to play.

Relax and take it easy

Relax and take it easy, why not. If you come for no other reason than to lie back on the lush green lawns with splendid views and gardens to gaze your eyes upon. You only live once, why not live it in style.
