Kings Park Nightlife

    The Summer 2006/07 program - available November

    by Gwynneth Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Summer, Kings Park must be enjoyed at night. The drive up the main road in Kings Park lined with uplit gum trees is just the beginning. The stars in our night sky are just awesome and Kings Park is the place to discover how beautiful they really are.

    Enjoy the Moonlight Cinema, which screens outside in the Lakeside Picnic Area. You can see everythings from classic, arthouse and cult movies... or... be whooed by local and interstate theatre company productions that usually include the Taming of the Shrew, and Romeo and Juliet. The settings are perfect!

    Take some nibblies, a bottle of wine and a picnic blanket and someone who knows how to enjoy a good night out!

    Dress Code: Bring a jacket or someone who'll lend you theirs - it gets cool once the sun goes down.

If a normal green Perth bus is waiting there, then you...
