Enjoy dozens of free and fabulous events for nature lovers, garden gurus and those with an interest in conservation and the beautiful Western Australian environment. 

The Festival will run from 1 – 30 September, with more than 25,000 plants and hundreds of wildflower varieties bursting into bloom, heralding the start of spring in the South West of WA.

With ‘Instagrammable’ spots around every corner, there will be plenty of opportunities to get back to nature with guided walks and outdoor wellness classes, as well as 17 hectares of the beautiful Western Australian Botanic Garden to explore. If you love photography, make sure to take part in our Flowers in Focus photography competition for a chance to win prizes and have your image displayed in an outdoor exhibition in Kings Park.

Join our friends at GoGo Active Tours on a wildflower bike tour and the crew at The Hike Collective for a ‘High Tea and Guided Hike’ through some of our wildflower hotspots.  

After all that sightseeing, you will be able to relax in the spring sunshine and enjoy acoustic music in several of our parkland precincts on select weekends.  

There will be so much to see and do in Kings Park this September and we are having a great time planning it for your enjoyment!
