Kings Park is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks. It is rich in Aboriginal and European history, contemporary culture and offers innovative design, displays and services. Kings Park has an international reputation for scientific research, leading horticulture, conservation and public education.

Kings Park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora. Two thirds of the 400 hectare park is protected as bushland and provides a haven for native biological diversity.

Visitors can enjoy sweeping views of the Swan and Canning Rivers, the city skyline and the Darling Ranges to the east. Bushland walk trails, immaculate gardens and parklands and a variety of children’s discovery play areas can all be found in Kings Park. The Visitor Information Centre, free daily guided walks, Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop, cafes and public transport are easily accessible.

Few people - even residents of Western Australia - will ever have the opportunity to see the State's endangered plants growing in their natural habitats. The 4,600 square metre Conservation Garden is intended to house approximately 400 species in a gently undulating landscape complete with a billabong and swales - depressions which become moist or even swampy following winter rainfall. Plants are grouped according to region or type of country - such as granite outcrop, sand plain, northern and arid - with additional categories for critically endangered and winter-wet. Some spectacular favourites are represented such as species of Banksia, Darwinia, Dryandra, Eremophila, Grevillea and Verticordia. If you are familiar with native gardens in Western Australia, some inclusions might surprise you. For example, silky eremophila (Eremophila nivea), a handsome shrub with silvery white foliage and violet flowers, is critically endangered yet it is also commercially available and widely planted in home gardens. Interpretive signage explains why certain species in the Conservation Garden are threatened and highlights the successes of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority in pulling some plants back from the brink of extinction by using techniques ranging from DNA analysis to tissue culture. The Authority acknowledges the vital contribution made by the Department of Parks and Wildlife which collects the seeds of rare and endangered species in the wild and arranges translocation of plants when necessary. In essence, the Conservation Garden is a visual consolidation of the essential and substantial work the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority undertakes to preserve Western Australia's precious biodiversity.
