Kings Park Photo Gallery
Kings Park is situated right beside, and overlooks the central business area of Perth as well as the Swan River. This is one place you must visit when in Perth as it is the best place to get a really good view of the city. Stand beside the State War Memorial and look out over the wide expanse of the River, the city, the Narrows Bridge and back towards Fremantle where the River enters the Indian Ocean.
Kings Park in Perth Western Australia was officially opened in 1895. It is located on the western edge of the Perth Central Business District on Mount Eliza. The park has an area of 1003 acres and is a mixture of Botanical Gardens, natural bush land and grassed parkland. About two thirds of the Park is almost untouched native bush land.
The many grassed areas throughout the Beautiful Kings Park makes it an ideal place for picnics, family reunions, weddings, wedding photos or just a place to relax and meditate.
Kings Park in Perth Western Australia
As you enter the park you will drive through an avenue of Lemon Scented Gum Trees that line Fraser Avenue, the main entrance to Kings Park, they were planted in 1937 and are one of the main attractions in this special place.
During September-October each year Kings Park in Perth Western Australia is the place to see Australia’s largest wildflower show and exhibition. If you come to Perth during this time, then please do not miss a visit to the Park as it is quite a special sight. This area, almost in the center of the city, comes alive in a burst of colours as the wild flowers display their natural beauty.
Not only will you see the wild flowers but the Park is also teeming with native birds that are attracted to the flowers of the native trees. You can get reasonably close to the birds as they see many thousands of people each year and are therefore not overly afraid, so they are easy targets for your camera.
How about a walk among the tree tops while enjoying some of the most spectacular views in Perth. If this appeals to you, then walk The Lottery west Federation Walkway and get some great Pictures of Perth.
