Kings Park is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of Perth. Located on Mount Eliza it is a huge park, largely vegetated with natural bushland.
There are lots of attractions within the park but the road from the main entry on Kings Park Road (at the top of St Georges Terrace) is the best way to enter the park to get the full 'Wow' factor.
The views over the City and Swan River from the walkways and parkland are spectacular.
Take time to visit the War Memorial. It is a place of peaceful rememberance and reverence.
The trees along the road are up-lit at night, so it's also great place to visit at dusk.
Throughout the park you will find avenues of trees with name plates on them. These are to commemorate the lives of military personel who have given their lives so that people like you and I can live our lives free to enjoy all that the park stands for..
The treetop walk is also well worth doing and you just pay what you decide to via an honesty box. Most people seem to pop in a gold coin or two.
There are places to eat from casual to upmarket both at the main centre of the park and also scattered throughout the Park plus lots of green lawns and benches to set up a picnic you've brought with you.
There's also a couple of shops and plenty of public toilets.
Like most public parks, it's Free to visit with just a couple of exceptions like special events, etc. It's about a 15 minute walk from downtown Perth city, but is uphill so why not take advantage of the free 'Cat' bus. Not all venues and parklands within the park are within walking distance of the main concourse so if you are intending to use them, then best to drive there although parking is limited at some venues.
