Free guided walks in Kings Park and Botanic Garden are led by the Kings Park Volunteer Guides. They depart daily from Fraser Avenue, outside Aspects of Kings Park.

Guided walks are free to the public and bookings are not necessary for groups less than 10 people. Special guided walks are available for group bookings (greater than 10 people) who have particular needs, such as a convenient time or specially designed topic.

Additional walks are available during the annual Kings Park Festival in September.

In rare circumstances, guided walks may be cancelled such as the afternoons of extreme fire danger days. Notices will be posted to this website.

Daily discovery walks

Walks depart daily at 10.00 am, 12.00 pm and 2.00 pm. They run every day throughout the year, except Christmas Day on a variety of topics.

Walk topics are detailed below and the schedule of walks is available in the 'Kings Park Free Guided Walks brochure' and events calendar.
