Plan your festival visit
We encourage you to plan your visit to get the most out of your time at the Everlasting Kings Park Festival.
Kings Park is popular year-round, but September is by far our busiest time of year. Here’s some information to assist with your planning.
The Festival runs during the last two weeks of September and most events take place between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm to allow the flowers to have a good rest each night.
Many events start outside Aspects of Kings Park Gallery Shop in the main visitor hub. Check out the Festival events calendar for a comprehensive list of all the happenings this September or pop into the Visitor Information Centre.
Bookings and costs
Kings Park is free to enter, but some events have a cost associated.
Bookings are essential for some events (even if they’re free) so make sure you register early to avoid missing out. More information about bookable events is available in the events calendar.
September weather can be a mixed bag, but our events go ahead rain or shine, so dress appropriately. Cancellations will only occur in the event of severe weather. Check the latest notices or follow Kings Park and Botanic Garden on Facebook to stay up to date with Festival alerts. If you’ve registered for an event, you will receive a notification if we need to cancel it.
Kings Park encourages visitors to use public transport or visit the park on foot or by bike. Kings Park is located just 1.5 km from the Perth CBD.
The free and frequent 935 Transperth bus from St Georges Terrace comes right into the heart of Kings Park. City CAT buses (also free) are also available by the main Kings Park entry on Kings Park Road. Visit the Transperth website or download their app for more information.
Minor road closures and detours are occasionally in place during the Kings Park Festival. Drop-off zones are located outside major venues to assist visitors arriving by car. Free parking is available in carparks and along verges in Kings Park. Please adhere to parking signs and do not park on lawns, footpaths or over emergency access areas.
The team at GoGo Active Tours are running special bike tours throughout the month.
Join our friends at The Hike Collective for a Kings Park Guided Hike tour.
Food and drinks
Food and drinks are available for purchase at Kings Park cafes and restaurants. Don’t forget to sort your waste into our general or recyclable bins or, even better, take your rubbish home with you.
We love dogs, but as the Festival can attract large crowds we strongly recommend leaving your pooch at home if you intend to visit major Festival attractions. With the exception of assistance dogs, they are not permitted at group events such as guided walks. All dogs in Kings Park must be on a lead.
