This venue remains a hidden treasure at the end of the State Botanic Garden. A tranquil and shady setting, it features the Roe memorial which bears a bronze plate depicting one of the earliest maps of Perth.

Built in 1956 and constructed of hewn granite in hexagonal form, it was named after John Septimus Roe; who was responsible for surveying and apportioning the land in Perth.

This gently sloping site offers tranquil, shady grassed areas with spectacular views and the stunning Place of Reflection. Due to the unique nature of this venue, special conditions apply.
