The Place of Reflection, a treasure within the Western Australian Botanic Garden, has received global recognition for its innovative design.

The collaboration of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority and landscape architects Plan E has earned the Place of Reflection project a feature on renowned international website (worldlandscapearchitect.com) and promotion as a world class, innovative architectural design.

Located in the Roe Gardens towards the southern end of the Western Australian Botanic Garden, the Place of Reflection includes the Marlee Pavilion and contemplation platforms overlooking the gardens and bushland of the Mt Eliza Escarpment.

The pavilion was predominantly constructed from steel, including decorative filigree screens with a copper finish. The contemplation decks also include the screens and laser cut patterns of Western Australian Eucalyptus websteriana. All decking and timber lining in the pavilion was constructed using seasoned jarrah, recycled from the demolition of Perry Lakes Stadium. 

The Place of Reflection's unique lighting installation designed by Engineering Technology Consultants (ETC) and Plan E, was also recognised with an Award of Commendation at the IES Lighting Awards 2012.

The concept for the Place of Reflection was developed by a Consortium including the following organisations:

  • Association for Services to Torture & Trauma Survivors (ASeTTS)
  • Friends of Kings Park
  • Healing Hearts Foundation (Rotary Club of Heirisson)
  • SIDS and Kids WA
  • Soroptimist International of South Perth
  • The Compassionate Friends

The Place of Reflection was created to be a tranquil space that is both transformative and restorative; a landmark location where all people who have suffered loss or trauma can seek understanding, peace, healing, hope and renewal.
