Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is a place for children to connect with nature and learn to appreciate the unique Western Australian environment.

Join us to brave the heights of The Bungarra and The Python, wade in the Paperbark Waterhole, get caught in a web in The Tangle, disappear down The Burrow and build your best-ever cubby. Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is the perfect place for kids to connect with nature and have fun outdoors.

Don't forget to check out our program of self-guided free nature-based activities. Parental supervision is required at all times.

We highly recommend you plan your visit carefully before arrival.
