When you find yourself in Kings Park ,which is a must when in Perth.The Kings Park is huge and such a wonderful place to relax. Also located by Kings Park is the Perth Botanical gardens.
These are a beautiful Botanical Gardens and one well worth a visit, with an amazing bio diversity of plants and flowers ...I must say I really love the Native wildflowers and are so photogenic.
To be found here also are many different types of Australian trees .There is one in particular that draws a lot of attention that was shipped in by road from way "outback" in the Kimberley area of Western Australia., and that is a Boab Bottle tree. This must have been quite an effort to re locate and then re plant this large tree. I am sure that you will be taken by the wildflowers and the wonderful way that this lovely garden area is set out.You can even take a walk through the trees!!!
Kings Park is a definate 'must see' when visiting Perth. The stunning views over Perth and the Swan River are awesome! The tree-lined entry road is a sight to behold! and the lovely bush, flowers and trees, along with wholesome fresh air and peaceful surroundings will leave an impression of Perth that is truely spell-binding!!.....
If you are in Perth around July to October, then that is wildflower season and Kings Park is a great place to see them. They also have a wildflower festival every year in September and it is worth seeing.
Even big kids love this fountain :o) This is a great sight. The water fountains change from nothing, to a huge fountain spray. Lots of Oooo's and Ahhhh's here!
Kings Parks has lots of lovely bush walks and so close to the city. A lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon.
The park is very well mapped and sign posted with information panels along the paths to help explain the flora and fauna of the garden.
The botanic gardens are enhanced with architectural pagolas and many cast sculputral works hidden amogst the foliage. It makes walking through this peaceful place even more interesting.
A sensational bridge of steel and glass has been built amongst the gums in Kings Park you experience a whole different angle of the park and its spectacluar views from this aspect.
