King's Park Review
Locals boast that this is one of the few inner-city parks to dwarf New York City's Central Park; it covers 1,000-acres and grants eye-popping views of downtown Perth at sunrise, sunset, and all times in between. Once a gathering place for Aboriginal people and established as a public space in 1890, it's favored for picnics, parties, and weddings, as well as regular musical and theater presentations, plus the excellent summer Moonlight Cinema. In spring the gardens blaze with orchids, kangaroo paw, banksias, and other native wildflowers, making it ideal for a walk in the bushland. The steel-and-timber Lotterywest Federation Walkway takes you into the treetops and the 17-acre botanic garden of Australian flora. The Synergy Parkland details Western Australia's fossil and energy history. The Lotterywest Family Area has a playground for youngsters. Free walking tours, which depart from the Aspects Gift Shop on Fraser Avenue, take place daily at 10 am and 2 pm; November–June there's also a walk at noon. Details on seasonal and themed tours are available from the information kiosk near Fraser's Restaurant.
