Kings Park crowned Australia's best attraction

Kings Park and Botanic Garden has taken the crown as Australia’s ‘best of the best attraction’ in the 2024 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Awards.

The Park took the top spot for things to do across the nation, beating the Sydney Opera House and the botanic gardens from all other States.

Kings Park was one of only two Australian attractions to receive a perfect five-star TripAdvisor rating based on almost 12,500 reviews.

The Tripadvisor ‘Best of the Best’ title is awarded to the top ten most highly-rated attractions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period.

One user said, ‘Every visitor I know wants to visit Kings Park. And rightly so. It's beautiful. Just the botanical select[ion] is enough to get visitors impressed.’

Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA), Director Experience, Jo Metcalf said, “We’re thrilled that visitors to our park and botanic garden love it as much as we do.

“Western Australian flora is like no other in the world, and here at Kings Park we are immensely proud to have the Western Australian Botanic Garden that showcases and conserves more than 3000 of our State’s unique species.

“The team at Kings Park, including horticulturists, turf management, arbor, bushland, visitor services and infrastructure, work extremely hard to create a green paradise in the heart of Perth city.

“We encourage everyone from Australia and the world to make it your next destination and enjoy the beautiful gardens, rich Noongar cultural heritage, bushland trails, lookouts and family areas.”
