Kings Park and Botanic Garden is excited to present the 2017 Kings Park Festival which is celebrating ‘Where the Wildflowers Are!’ Western Australian wildflowers will form the stunning backdrop to a month long extravaganza of walks and talks, outdoor exhibitions, art installations and fun for all the family.

There’s no doubt Kings Park will be where the wildflowers are this September, with the largest presentation of WA’s blooming beauties from all across the state. Kings Park will transform into a rainbow of colour and movement and we want you to join us in the celebration.

The 2017 Kings Park Festival is proudly presented by Kings Park and Botanic Garden and the Friends of Kings Park with the generous support of Lotterywest.

Ephemeral Art Installation

This year’s Festival will also focus on the relationships between plants and animals with an interesting and educational outdoor exhibition, 'Wildflowers and Superpowers', which will lead visitors to a stunning ephemeral art-piece in the heart of the WA Botanic Garden.
