Cinema LawnView venue slideshow

Tucked away from the more crowded areas, this shaded area of manicured lawns overlooks the Arthur Fairall Playground and is close to BBQs.

The open grassed area beckons visitors to walk up the Broadwalk Vista to the Western Australian Botanic Garden and climb the DNA tower en route.
