There is no need to head to New York, Paris or Barcelona - one of the world’s best parks is right here in Perth.

Kings Park ranked #6 in the world, ahead of the famous Park Guell in Barcelona and the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris in this year’s awards. It has also been awarded the best park in Australia for a second year.

WA Minister for Environment Albert Jacob congratulated Kings Park on its success.

‘It is thrilling to not only be ranked sixth in the world in TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards for Attractions, but also to read the amazing reviews about Kings Park posted on TripAdvisor by visitors from all over the world every day,’ he said.

Kings Park is an iconic part of Western Australian life: a place of inspiration, relaxation, recreation and wonder; something we proudly share with interstate and overseas visitors. And share it we do – nearly six million people visit the park every year.

Visitors are drawn in by the sweeping views of the river, city skyline and the Darling Ranges to the east. Once here, they often stay longer than planned, seduced by the beauty and tranquility of one of the world’s largest inner city parks.

The park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora, most of which can be found nowhere else on Earth.

The Traveller’s Choice Awards are based on rankings from thousands of traveller reviews. Kings Park consistently achieves visitor satisfaction ratings of more than 99 per cent in its annual visitor surveys.
