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.
There are two walks to enjoy through the Western Australian Botanic Garden. The Short Walk is 20 minutes one way, or 40 minutes return. If you have more time, the Long Walk (1 hour and 20 minutes return) is a fantastic way to cover the entire area, including the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, Pioneer Women's Memorial fountain and Water Garden.
The Botanic Garden Discovery map contains descriptions of the plants, statues and sculptures. It can be downloaded from the WA Botanic Garden map page or obtained from the Visitor Information Centre on Fraser Avenue.
