With endless sunshine, fresh sea breezes and balmy evenings, summer is a sublime time of year to explore and relax in Kings Park.

Pack a picnic and enjoy a number of national and international acts in the beautiful surrounds of Kings Park and Botanic Garden.

Overdue for a catch up with friends and family? Gather a group for a picnic, enjoy a family barbecue on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or take a stroll through the botanic gardens with a friend. Reserve your spot if you are expecting more than 50 people for your gathering.

If you love the nostalgia of catching a flick beneath a starry sky, head to the Moonlight Outdoor Cinema. The summer stalwart shows a mix of old favourites and new releases and a Mexican-style food truck and candy bar serves up sweet treats and delicious meals all night long. For a glamorous upgrade, snap up a Gold Grass ticket and recline in prime viewing position on a comfy bean bag.

To celebrate 30 years of dance floor history, Ministry of Sound returns to Kings Park and Botanic Garden with the next evolution of their acclaimed live orchestral event on 11 December, completely reimagined as 'Ministry of Sound Classical'. 

Meanwhile Australian icons John Butler and Kasey Chambers will ignite the Pioneer Women’s Memorial stage on Saturday 9 April. The stage is set for an amazing mixture of Australian musical excellence.

The final concert for the season is last but not least, with ICEHOUSE coming to Kings Park for a special show on 23 April celebrating the 40th birthday of Australian anthem Great Southern Land. Joined by Something For Kate, Jebediah and Emily Wurramara this show is not to be missed.

For a bit of culture that's entertaining for all the family, join Shakespeare in the Park for this year's favourite: A Midsummer Night's Dream. This hilarious presentation of a classic will have you laughing and enthralled for a magical night under the stars.

For those with little ones, the Prompt Corner children’s theatre promises to enthral and entertain young minds. Join Annie and friends in this version of the classic musical on 7 and 8 January 2022.

Details of all summer events in Kings Park are available in our events calendar.

If you’re more partial to the sweet sounds of nature, head to the park for an outdoor workout, a peaceful spot to get lost in a good book, or to just sit back with a coffee and absorb the breathtaking views.
