The 2018 Kings Park Festival will celebrate ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ this September with the world’s biggest display of WA wildflowers. There will be dozens of events for art 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 the more than 25,000 plants and hundreds of wildflower varieties bursting into bloom, heralding the start of spring in the South West of Western Australia. There will be plenty of opportunities to get back to nature with guided walks, outdoor photography and art exhibitions, as well as 17 hectares of the beautiful Western Australian Botanic Garden to explore.
You will be able to enjoy a guided walk through the WA Botanic Garden, Kings Park Bushland or Bold Park with our expert volunteers and staff, or get your native gardening tips at a Dig it with Coffee session run weekly during September. For a deeper look at the WA environment, you might like to come along to an informative Science Seminar hosted by passionate environmental scientists and conservationists.
Our ‘everlasting’ sculpture in the WA Botanic Garden and a breathtaking outdoor photographic exhibition are sure to be festival favourites during 2018.
The ever-popular Friends of Kings Park native plant sale will feature on the weekend of 15 and 16 September. This blooming marvellous event offers thousands of healthy WA plants for sale, including rare and unusual native species not available at commercial nurseries.
After all that sightseeing, you will be able to relax in the sunshine at the Botanic Base on weekends and enjoy acoustic music, outdoor games and entertainment in the gardens outside Aspects of Kings Park.
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!
