Kings Park Bushland
Two thirds of Kings Park is protected as managed bushland and provides an important haven for visitors and native biodiversity.
There are a series of walking tracks and designated pedestrian/cycle paths through the Kings Park bushland that allow visitors the chance to appreciate Kings Park's unique flora, fauna and fungi.
For those seeking an interpretive walking experience, we recommend the Bushland Nature Trail which offers unique encounters with WA's biodiversity or the longer Law Walk which provides stunning river views and an insight into the Mount Eliza escarpment.
Kings Park sits upon the tableland area of the Mt Eliza escarpment, which rises steeply from the Swan River to a high point in the landscape of 65 m and is visible from the city foreshore and surrounding suburbs.
There are 325 species of local native plants growing in Kings Park bushland, which represents about 15% of the native flora of the Perth Region.
Kings Park bushland provides a corridor benefit to local birds and invertebrates, allowing the continuation of species migration through the urban environment.
Almost all of the 265 different fungi species documented so far are considered to be indigenous to the area.
Kings Park bushland offers a unique location to escape the urban environment within Perth City. These are some of our favourites.
The Kings Park Science team's integrated and innovative research underpins the conservation and ecological restoration of WA's unique biodiversity.
