    Lovely place to spend a couple of hours
    Arrived in time to latch onto a free guided tour by David. Easy walk & informative talk. Not the right time for flowers but the expansive selection of trees were amazing. Lovely views over Perth & rivers. Beautiful gift shop.

    Make Sure That You Visit
    Nobody should go to Perth and not visit Kings Park. It offers magnificent vistas of the city and the Swan River. The lawns of the parkland area are beautifully manicured and festooned with stately trees, especially on Fraser Avenue. In the ‘wilder’ areas of the park the astonishing variety of the many species of native plants is amazing.

    World's largest inner city wild park
    Kings Park is an area of wilderness. It is the world's largest inner city wild park. Kings Park also contains the Botanic Garden, which is home to a wide variety of West Australian plants, from the maritime South West to the torrid Kimberley. The War Memorial overlooks the Swan River. Access to Kings Park is very convenient, you can drive or take the bus from the City.

    Great views of the City
    Be sure to take the free guided tour. Our guide, Ann was so enthusiastic about the gardens she had a hard time keping the tour to 2 hours. The tours are offered twice a day and cover the history, flora and fauna of WA.

    Probably the best location to view the water and the city
    Beautifully kept garden with a vast variety of native flora species. The views over the water are some of the best in Perth. Immaculately maintained (to a significant extent, by hard-working and friendly volunteers)! There was also a very nice cafe/coffee shop and gift shop. Very impressed!

    Breath taking Kings Park Perth
    Breath taking, glorious, spectacular is what you can bring to mind when entering and wandering this massive inviting Park. Perth city proper overlooking the majestic Swan River is the panoramic view you observe from ground level of this finest Park as the name implies. One visit will not be enough as you know a return to the Kings is a must.

    Nice to visit
    It has interactive displays, a café, tranquil lakes and an amphitheatre. The park is a great place to relax and explore nature. There are many walks and trails to explore, and the views are spectacular. The café is a great place to stop and have a bite to eat. The amphitheatre is a great spot to watch performances and enjoy the outdoors. The interactive displays are great for kids and adults alike. All in all, Kings Park and Botanic Garden is a great place to explore and relax.

    A must-visit destination in Australia
    It's a beautiful park with winding paths and stunning views of the city. There are also plenty of sculptures and playgrounds for kids to enjoy. The gift shop is full of souvenirs and gifts to take home. It's a perfect place to spend a day outdoors with family and friends. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful place in an amazing location. While a very hot day, the shady areas and breezes made in more tolerable. There are many different paths and the walking not difficult. Clearly can accommodate a wide range of mobility and fitness.

This is a great place to go during the day and at night-time for an amazing view of the skyline and river. It's also a huge park with loads of walks that also have great views. Lovely place to play games or have a picnic or just walk and take pictures. Nice cafe's too!

The free walking tour is great. Lead by a volunteer guide with plenty of knowledge. It’s all about the flora and fauna really with a little bit of history thrown in. A gorgeous spot to walk around, sit in the shade or just relax to take it all in. Great views back to the city of Perth. The walk took approx 1.5 hours and is an easy stroll even for the elderly. Well worth it.

Always a beautiful place. Will always return. The views are stunning. Parking can be a challenge. Food can be overpriced. But you can have a picnic and take your own which is always good.

A main highlight of my trip to Western Australia, Perth in particular. Kings Park is really a huge place. Lots of flora, sceneries, places to relax and buy food, plus a line of tall trees with names/history attached to it. This is an extremely well-maintained park. You can literally spend the whole day here with family and friends. Alongside the park is the Swan River and the Swan Brewery can be seen from a vantage point. A souvenir shop is also available near the parking area. This was such an unforgettable experience for me. The kids had a blast too with everything they saw and every place we went inside this park.

A well designed and planned park in the heart of Perth, with an abundance of walking and bike trails. There are plenty of walking options, and the flora and fauna are well marked and advertised. Take a hat and water bottle and enjoy.

What an incredible park! It’s absolutely huge and every area beautifully kept. There’s loads to admire and explore throughout and the signage for ‘attractions’ is good. Views over the city are amazing and there’s a good cafe / restaurant with plenty of parking at one end. History, nice walking bridges, more natural wild areas and picnic areas - there’s something for everyone. Everyone should explore here on a first visit to the city.

This tourist attraction is a must do for any visitor to Perth and also for locals to revisit regularly.
Regardless of the time of the year, there is always something to see and always some flowers out somewhere. Lovely walks around the whole park and spectacular views across Perth and environs. Just allow plenty of time to do it justice.
Go late afternoon with a picnic dinner and sit watching the sunset behind you as the city lights come on.
No trouble getting there and the free bus service is excellent.
