Lotterywest Federation Walkway

Walk among the treetops and enjoy spectacular views of the city skyline on the Federation Walkway.

The journey extends 620 metres through the Western Australian Botanic Garden over an arched bridge suspended among a canopy of tall eucalypts.

One of Kings Park and Botanic Garden's most popular tourist attractions, the 40 minute return journey begins east of the Forrest Roundabout. It travels through the Western Australian Botanic Garden and over the spectacular elevated 52 metre glass and steel arched bridge to the Beedawong Meeting Place.

Along the way, enjoy views of the Swan and Canning Rivers, diverse Western Australian flora, Aboriginal art, the Water Garden and Marri woodland forest.

The rusted steel structure finish was designed to blend in with the trees in the gardens. It provides a potent reminder of the rusted steel of camps, farms and mines in the Western Australian bush at the time of Federation.
