The 2019 Kings Park Festival is here with 30,000 of Western Australia’s famous wildflowers in full bloom across the park and a month-long program of over 100 events and activities.
Festival highlights include the Park’s largest ever community art project, with more than 400 woven and crocheted ‘wildflowers’ created by people from all walks of life on display. ‘Floral Regalia supported by Lotterywest’ will be on show in the WA Botanic Garden throughout September.
The Friends of Kings Park will host their biggest native plant sale of the year on 14 and 15 September, with more than 9,500 plants available for purchase including 11 species on sale for the first time.
Don’t miss several fantastic events at Aspects of Kings Park Gallery Shop including your opportunity to meet talented local artists and seeing beautiful wildflower creations by floristry students.
Nearly 30,000 plants have been planted by horticulturists and volunteers for spring, with several new species planted in Kings Park for the first time including threatened species Eucalyptus impensa and Eremophila species commonly called the ‘Poverty Bush’ which is native to arid regions of WA. Before you visit, make sure you check out our plants in focus for the month of September or design your own walk with our ‘Where the Wildflowers Are’ map.
The Kings Park Festival is proudly presented by Kings Park and Botanic Garden and the Friends of Kings Park, with the generous support of Lotterywest who have been a Festival supporter for more than 10 years.
