The Pioneer Women's Memorial consists of an ornamental lake, sculpture and fountains located in the heart of the Western Australian Botanic Garden.

The iconic nine foot bronze sculpture was formally opened in January 1968, reputed to be the largest undertaken in Australia at the time. Margaret Priest was the first female sculptor to undertake public art works in Western Australia and assisted during the 2009 restoration.

The figure represents a mother with an infant in her arms, stepping forth to meet her destiny. It stands on a stepping stone in the pond surrounded by five other stepping stones and fountains, and is the centre piece of the Water Garden.

The symbolism of the three minute sequence of the water fountains begins with the bubblers representing bushes to be negotiated on the way to opening up land, rising to taller spouts representing trees around pioneer homesteads.

The Pioneer Women's Memorial transforms during the summer events season in Kings Park to become a magical setting for live concerts.

About

The Pioneer Women's Memorial is located in the Western Australian Botanic Garden, within Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia. It comprises a lake, sculpture and fountain and was built to honour the contributions of pioneering women to the development of the city and state.

In the early 1960s there were moves to establish the memorial,  with planning beginning in 1963.  The centrepiece, a nine-foot tall bronze statue designed by Margaret Priest, stands on a stepping stone in an ornamental lake and is surrounded by five other stones and fountains. The statue was unveiled, and the fountain in the lake was officially started, by the Governor of Western Australia on 14 January 1968. The opening ceremony was hosted by the King's Park Board members and chairman, and a large group of attendees heard a speech by Geoffrey Summerhayes, the architect, which described his plan for the memorial as, "the figure of a woman apparently mounting a stream by stepping stones … stepping stones of progress".

The area around the memorial was upgraded in 1999, and the Centenary of Western Australian Women's Suffrage Memorial was added nearby.
