This weekend marks the beginning of Parks Week, the perfect time to bring friends and family to Perth’s top natural tourist destination.
Whether you are spending time with a visitor from across the border or simply catching up with loved ones, Kings Park offers recreational spaces, natural wonders and educational activities in a safe outdoor setting.
Parks Week (5 – 13 March) is a reminder of the role Kings Park, Bold Park and parks across Perth play in improving our quality of life and creating liveable cities.
Research has repeatedly shown that parks and gardens provide wide-ranging health benefits.
Clean air, stunning natural vistas, room to reconnect with loved ones away from the city’s hustle and bustle all contribute to physical fitness, mental health and wellbeing.
Twice daily free guided walks in Kings Park by the Kings Park Volunteer Guides provide an opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the Western Australian Botanic Garden, learn about WA’s unique flora while engaging in light exercise away from screens and the workplace.
For those looking to spend time with friends, develop a new cultural insight or enjoy a more strenuous activity, tour operators including GoGo Active Tours, Go Cultural Aboriginal Tours & Experiences, Nyungar Tours Kings Park Yorgas Walk, Segway Tours and The Hike Collective offer a unique experience of the most picturesque parts of Kings Park.
In Bold Park, the Friends of Bold Park Bushland share the wonders of native bushland and fauna with tours for visitors who de-stress amongst the tuart-banksia woodlands.
Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority Executive Director Alan Barrett said Kings Park provided a location for social connection amidst Western Australia’s beautiful native flora.
'Kings Park and Botanic Garden has to be at the top of your must-see list when visiting or living in Perth.
With guided walks amongst our State’s unique flora, popular attractions such the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, adventures for kids in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park and our many food and drink venues, it is the perfect place to visit with friends and family.
Parks Week is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the importance of green spaces for our wellbeing, building healthy communities and preserving our flora and fauna for future generations.
With the borders open, show your visitors all the benefits Perth’s green heart has to offer.'
