Historic Festival

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Western Australian Botanic Garden in Kings Park and the 52nd Kings Park Festival.

The Western Australian Botanic Garden is one of the most visited and unique of its kind in the world. Known around the world for being 'ahead of its time' since it began in 1965, it is devoted to native flora – in recognition of Western Australia's abundant, rare, fragile and uniquely beautiful plant life. The South West of WA is classed as a global biodiversity hotspot.

The Western Australian Botanic Garden is a leader in environmental conservation, horticulture and scientific research which has made its plant collection one of the best in the world. Its displays are underpinned by scientific research, conservation and painstakingly maintained living collections.

The Botanic Garden also encompasses much of the State's cultural heritage – from ancient Nyoongar history to modern day - through public art, memorials, trails and garden displays. It is also the venue for many cultural events each year – including the Kings Park Festival.
