Top Ten Things To Do
Enjoy treetops and river views
Admire panoramic views, learn about the diversity of Western Australian flora and discover our rich history along the Lotterywest Federation Walkway. Continue the journey on Law Walk and discover Beedawong - a special meeting place for the Indigenous people. See the mighty boab tree Gija Jumulu, a 750 year old specimen that travelled 3,200 km from the Kimberley region of WA.
Explore play areas
Visit play areas at the Lotterywest Family Area, May Drive Parkland and the Saw Avenue Picnic Area where children meet the colourful animal Fritters, play in the footprints of dinosaurs, and discover the insect world.
Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park
A place for children to connect with the environment and see what it's like to make their own fun: explore, climb ropes, wade through creeks, build cubbies and get dirty. Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is the perfect outing for families and school excursions.
Events and festivities
Kings Park is host to a range of summer events including outdoor concerts, movies and theatre from November - April each year. The renowned Kings Park Festival is held each September to celebrate the wildflower season and beginning of spring.
