Join us on International Women’s Day for a free guided walk around the beautiful and verdant Pioneer Women’s Memorial precinct.

Learn about the ancient role Aboriginal women played in Indigenous culture here, like using plants for food and medicine. Then continue a journey through Western Australian history to the more recent contribution of women in the development of the State.

This walk is being led by the knowledgeable Kings Park Volunteer Guides.
