Self-guided walks are available for visitors to experience Kings Park walking trails at their own leisure. Discover the history of the area, learn about traditional plant use or visit one of the many artworks within the park.
One of the most impressive areas of Kings Park is the 17 hectare Western Australian Botanic Garden. Over 3,000 species of flowering plants have been cultivated in garden beds that represent various geographical regions.
Kings Park and Botanic Garden has more memorials, statues and honour avenues than any other park in Australia. The Self-Guided Memorials Walk is 1.7 km in length and takes approximately one hour to walk, with suitable access for wheelchairs and prams.
Law Walk is Kings Park's premier urban bushland trail. It is a 2.5 km loop walk that provides visitors with scenic views of the Swan River and a unique insight into biodiversity along the Mount Eliza escarpment.
The Bushland Nature Trail walk offers a unique encounter with Western Australia's famous wildflowers, trees and birdlife in their natural environment.
Kings Park and Botanic Garden is home to a diverse range of flora and landscapes, all of which were understood and used by the native Aboriginal people of the South-West, the Nyoongar people.
A truly beautiful place, the Western Australian Botanic Garden is located high on the Mt Eliza scarp with sweeping river and city views.
These self-guided walks were created in 2015 for the Western Australian Botanic Garden 50th anniversary and celebrate the best of the conservation, cultivation, display and interpretation of the State's flora each month.
