Western Australian flora is some of the most abundant and diverse on Earth. In Kings Park and the Western Australian Botanic Garden, we celebrate, research and protect this beautiful and fragile native flora.

Kings Park sits in an eco-region that is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. The South West corner of Western Australia is home to a staggering 8,000 plant species, including many rare and threatened plants and more than half are found nowhere else on the planet.

Experts in horticulture, arbor, seed collection, turf science, bushland conservation, landscape design, plant development and environmental research make up one of the world’s most successful botanic garden teams. Together, we work towards providing spectacular gardens and sharing our love and knowledge of WA flora with the community.

Around one quarter (3,000 species) of all Western Australian plants are growing in Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
