Stickybeaks Cafe will soon feature a revamped exterior to offer Kings Park visitors an improved al fresco dining experience.

Stickybeaks Café new al fresco dining area plans.

Construction works to upgrade the cafe and surrounding area began last week with an estimated construction duration of three months.

Upgrades to the area also include modification to the attached public toilets to meet universal access standards and the refurbishment of the adjacent Ivey Watson Playground.

Works are estimated to take place from April to July with staggered closures of facilities in the area. Ivey Watson Playground will close early June to late July, while the cafe will remain open for business during the majority of works except for a two-week period in late June.

This project is part of the State Government’s $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan announced in July 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with additional funding provided by the Botanic Garden and Parks Authority.


The wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our number one priority during the current COVID-19 situation. We are closely monitoring and responding to Government health advice and putting extra measures in place to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors.
