Kings Park and Botanic Garden blossomed with all the colour of a special Western Australian Spring throughout September.
The annual Kings Park Festival has just celebrated its third year year in the new and exciting month long format. Building on the previous 44 year tradition of the Wildflower Festival, the 2009 Kings Park Festival had something for everyone, with a vast myriad of spectacular events and activities that had appeal to all ages and interests.
Kings Park attracted over 600,000 people throughout the month, including gardening enthusiasts, families, school students, artists, seniors and nature lovers in their droves, underlining the fact that Kings Park and Botanic Garden was definitely the place to be this September.
Themed Nature Inspiring Art the 2009 Kings Park Festival celebrated the beauty of the Western Australian environment and its inspiration as captured by local and international artists through various art forms. Visitors to the event were engaged by the beauty of flowering displays of over 3000 Western Australian native plants and wildflowers throughout the State’s Botanic Garden, and inspired to connect with nature at one of the many creative art and gardening workshops on offer.
If you didn’t get the opportunity to visit the Kings Park Festival then take advantage of the great spring weather to come to Kings Park for the day and enjoy the beautiful flowering displays that are still in bloom within the State’s Botanic Garden, or go on one of the free guided walks daily.
