If you go to King's Park in September and October, you will be rewarded with a massive display of colourful wildflowers which bloom in spring. However, I was there in November, a little bit too late as many of the wildflowers have wilted. There are still some wildflowers around in the park but no spectacular display.
Enjoy panoramic views of the city and the Swan River from this big 400-ha park.There are many different thematic gardens in the park which you can explore freely. There is also an elevated walkway where you can walk among the tree canopies.
Kings Park is located right next to the centre of Perth. It covers 400 hectares and is home to many native animals and plants. You'll get a fantastic view of the city from the many lookouts in Kings Park...
You can walk to Kings Park from the centre of town, it's not a long walk but it is up hill...if you don't want to walk then you can catch a bus or drive.
Grab a blanket, a pizza and a bottle of Margaret River Wine, and head up to Kings Park.
If there isn't much parking, when you see the view to your left, turn into the little carpark to your right, there's always a spot there.
If you go to Perth without seeing sunset at Kings Park, you will miss the most beautiful site in the whole city!
Just before sunset, my friends nudged me to get my butt in gear to arrive just in time. I had no clue what the fuss was about until we got there. Perth has some beautiful sunsets, but watching it over Kings Park (esp. the war memorial) is the most impressive. (The one night I forgot my camera - darn!!)
Bring a blanket and a bottle of wine settle in for the night...
Is the one and only city park that you must go to whether it's day or night. it has got beautiful views of perth. There are always activities there. In summer there is the sunset cinema(outdoor cinema) you haven't experienced a movie unless you watch it under the stars. There are plenty of walks, things to explore and places to eat. It is proberly the main picnic place in Perth.
If you are in Perth on valentines day i recommend you spend the evening watching the sunset, having a picnic or taking a walk in kings Park. It really is a thing to do and the atmosphere is unbelievable.
Thanks to Anna for this pic!
This is the scene of King Park at night. The trees are shone with different vibrant colour lights.Don't they make the trees look exotic?? Nice to chill out during summer nights.
In summer, there is Sunset Cinema at Kings Park.This means it's an open air cinema and simply just drive and park your car , and catch the movie from there.
The movie program can be obtained at Tourist Information Centre or do a web search for Sunset Cinema at Kings Park.
Officially the largest city centre park in the world, Kings Park offers a large area criss crossed by many tracks for a walk through bushland, or a visit to interesting places such as the newly redeveloped botanical gardens or the ANZAC memorial or the DNA tower.
Due to urbanisation and the planting and enroachment of exotic weeds on the Kings Park Scarp, large boulders tend to slip down the slope and land slips can occur, though there has been no fatalities as recent.
A trip to Perth is incomplete without a trip to the vast Kings Park. This is the quintessential Perth activity. Built on a hill overlooking Perth, Kings Park offers fantastic view of the CBD's skyscapers, and the city's sprawling suburbs traversed by elaborate modern roadways.
The view of the Swan river is also breathtaking, with its ferries and yachts gliding up and down the waterway. Perth is actually inland. The river's mouth cuts through the coastal suburb of Fremantle which serves as Perth's seaport on the Indian Ocean.
You'll see lotsa joggers in the early morning or evening. Plently of trees around which would be nice for people to get in touch with nature.
This is the place to be for taking Perth City Skyline pictures.*hint hint to photographers out there*
There is also a nice resturant/cafe for stopover.And thus, you're able to sip a cuppa while enjoying the magnificent views of Perth.
In Spring, there is a cultivated display of Western Australia's famed wildflowers. It is a really pretty time and also very popular, to wander through the park and enjoy them all. All the flowers have signs to identify them.
If you are ever in Perth yo must visit Kings Park whether at night or during the day it is a must. You can see the whole of the city from South to North. If you bring a picnic you won't be out of place. Make a trip to the women's garden to look at the water features. It is my favourite place in Perth
