Fraser Avenue leads the visitor from Kings Park Road, West Perth into the major tourist and restaurant precinct. A short walk takes visitors to the State War Memorial and Western Australian Botanic Garden entrance.

Named after the second Surveyor-General of Perth, Malcolm Fraser, this century old tree-lined avenue is one of the most visited sites in Perth.

An avenue of red-flowering gums (Corymbia ficifolia) was planted along Fraser Avenue to honour Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1898. Two more rows of red-flowering gums were planted to celebrate the State Centenary in 1929 and plaques placed at their bases to recognise the Centennial Committee.

Most trees succumbed to patch-canker disease and were replaced by lemon-scented gums (Corymbia citriodora) in 1938 from the east coast of Australia. During the 1970s the lemon-scented gums flourished. Today, the interlocking canopies form a majestic avenue that provide a well-photographed entry statement to Kings Park and Botanic Garden.

The Old Tea Pavilion and Jarrah Pavilion (formerly Rotunda One) are popular hire venues, along with others in this precinct that are available for group bookings.
