Opened by the Premier, the Hon Colin Barnett, on 15 April 2011, the Place of Reflection was created to be a tranquil area that is both transformative and restorative; a landmark location where all people who have suffered loss or trauma can seek understanding, peace, healing, hope and renewal.

Situated within the Place of Reflection in the Western Australian Botanic Garden, the Marlee Pavilion is stunning, spacious and easily accessible. It has wonderful views over the Swan River, Canning River and Darling Scarp and is surrounded by the bushland of the Mt Eliza Escarpment and the beautifully landscaped Roe Gardens.
