Guide to Naturescape

Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is like no play space in Perth! Kids exploring this urban wilderness will discover creeks and wetlands, cubbies and climbing ropes – and most of all, reconnect with nature!

Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park gives city kids the opportunity to have a ‘bush experience’ in the heart of Perth and have fun outdoors.

Explore the treetops, climb the Bungarra and Python, wade in Paperbark Creek, get caught the Tangle, disappear down the Burrow and build your best-ever cubby.  

Getting back to nature is not only an exciting break from the routine, but bush-play builds imagination, resilience, and most of all: healthy, joyful kids.

Children must be supervised at all times.

The Python is 40 metres long and reaches up to seven metres high! Explore its belly and peer out over the bushland.
