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.

In 2016, artists Paul Johnson and Gail Mason were commissioned to create a stunning new entry sculpture, 'Symbiotica', for the Western Australian Botanic Garden. Photo: D. Blumer.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 Walk brochure contains descriptions of the plants, statues and sculptures. It can be downloaded from the brochures section or obtained from the Visitor Information Centre on Fraser Avenue.
