Join us in celebrating the Western Australian Botanic Garden with several fantastic walks, wellness events, the Friends of Kings Park Native Plant Sale and more on Botanic Gardens Day on the last Sunday in May.

Established more than 50 years ago, the Western Australian Botanic Garden is not only a place of great beauty with more than 3,000 plant species on display, it is an important scientific institution, helping to conserve rare and endangered WA plant species for future generations.

Botanic Gardens Day is the perfect opportunity to plan a trip to explore the Western Australia Botanic Garden and get involved in one or all of the fantastic events we have on offer.  

Free guided walks

Join a free guided walk and learn more about the stunning flora on display or hear more about the stories of Kings park from earlier times. At 10am join the 'Stories of people and plants' walk and learn more about the memorials and monuments that call Kings Park home. At 12.00 pm and 2.00 pm join a ‘Botanic Garden treasures’ walk and discover the glorious diversity of the plants found across WA. Bookings are not required, walks depart from outside Aspects of Kings Park Gallery Shop.

Join us for a Gondwana adventure walk at 2.00 pm at May Drive Parkland to learn about evolution through time. Registrations essential.

Tai Chi in the park

Improve your mental, physical and spiritual health with a free group tai chi session at the Long Vista. Led by Taoist Tai ChiTM, learn more about this session and make sure you book early as places are limited for this free session.

Friends of Kings Park Native Plant Sale

After you’re inspired by a walk visit the Friends of Kings Park Native Plant Sale to collect some gorgeous native specimens to grow in your own garden.
