Kings Park and Botanic Garden celebrates the unique and diverse plant life of Western Australia and is part of the worldwide network of botanic gardens committed to plant conservation.
The original vision for Perth Park, later Kings Park, was of a European style garden with lawns, shady trees, and flower beds. Recognition of the climatic differences and the low nutrient soil changed this vision.
In October 1965, the 17 hectare Western Australian Botanic Garden was opened; an everchanging, living research centre that focuses on the conservation of Western Australia’s flora and displays some of the State’s most diverse and spectacular plant groups.
