Free guided walks in Kings Park and Botanic Garden are led by the Kings Park Volunteer Guides. They depart daily from Fraser Avenue, outside Aspects of Kings Park, except Christmas Day.
The Heart of Kings Park is a three-hour bushland walk, held on Fridays between July and October. Bookings are required for this walk and close midday Thursday.
Additional walks are available during the annual Kings Park Festival in September, some of which require booking as indicated in the events calendar.
In rare circumstances, guided walks may be cancelled such as the afternoons of extreme fire danger days. Notices will be posted to this website.
