If you are planning your visit to Kings Park and Botanic Garden or Bold Park, it is always a good idea to check the weather forecast so that you can be prepared.

Weather reports and fire danger ratings from the Bureau of Meteorology are published on our website for the Perth area generally and updated regularly but cannot be guaranteed as the latest information available. You might also be interested in observations from weather stations in Kings Park and Floreat Park established by the Department of Agriculture and Food. This information should be used as a guide only as weather conditions vary across each park.
