The Western Australian Botanic Garden is an ever-changing, living research centre committed to the conservation of Western Australia's flora. The garden beds display over 3,000 varieties of the State's unique flora, including many rare and threatened species.

The beds of the Western Australian Botanic Garden are grouped by regions of the State, various taxonomic groups and some purely for spectacular display. The regions include the Wheatbelt, Goldfields, Stirling Ranges, Rottnest and Garden islands, the Kimberley, Mulga, Southern Coastal and Darling Range, with other beds dedicated to key endemic genera such as Verticordia, Boronia, Grevillea and Hakea, Waxes and Kangaroo Paws and Eucalyptus.

A truly beautiful place, the Western Australian Botanic Garden is located high on the Mt Eliza scarp with sweeping river and city views. Unlike most botanic gardens, it is free to enter and open 24 hours a day.
