About


Kings Park is a 400.6-hectare (990-acre) park overlooking Perth Water and the central business district of Perth, Western Australia.

The park is a mixture of grassed parkland, botanical gardens and natural bushland on Mount Eliza with two-thirds of the grounds conserved as native bushland.

Offering panoramic views of the Swan River and Darling Range, it is home to over 324 native plant varieties, 215 known indigenous fungi species and 80 bird species.

It is the most popular visitor destination in Western Australia, being visited by over five million people each year.

Besides tourist facilities Kings Park contains the State War Memorial, the Royal Kings Park Tennis club and a reservoir. The streets are tree lined with individual plaques dedicated by family members to Western Australian service men and women who died in World War I and World War II.

The park is also rich in fauna (both native and imported) and during September of each year Kings Park hosts Australia's largest wildflower show and exhibition – the Kings Park Festival.



Here are some other interesting facts about our beloved Kings Park:

  • Kings Park is bigger than the world famous Central Park in New York. Our park measures up at 400.6 hectares, whereas the park seen on TV sitcom Friends is 341 hectares.
  • It was officially opened on 10 August 1895. The park was originally called Perth Park and was renamed in 1901 to King’s Park.
  • The Botanic Garden has been a fixture in the park since 1962. It’s home to more than half of Australia’s 25,000 plant species.
  • Jacob’s Ladder is a set of stairs located at the end of Cliff Street. It has 242 steps and is a dream for residents to exercise in the early morning or at lunch time. Your legs will feel it the following day.
  • There have been guides walks in the park since 1984. The volunteer guides cover all aspects of the park including the local Noongar names and traditions. Walks are varied according to the Noongar season Djilba-Kambarang (July–October) for the wildflower season; the Mukuru for May and June, and the Birak-Djeran for November to April.
  • The Kings Park Festival runs throughout September, and you can expect Live music concerts, outdoor exhibitions, guided walks and activities cater for all ages and interests. Some of the most beautiful trees in Kings Park will also be dressed to impress — the highlight will be the Queen’s Tree which will be dressed in a truly regal outfit.
