  • Lovely Cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. Delicious and healthy foods. Surrounded by glorious parkland, trees and native plants. Family friendly. Also has a take away kiosk. Good service and friendly staff. I go there often.
  • Very nice place to go see the city. It is an amazing view to see. The cafe is good and place next to it serves a great burger. The botanical garden itself is amazing with a huge variety of plants. Great place to bring kids. Also a great place to bring a book and a blanket and lay under the trees.
  • Kings Park is a great place to get out into a natural environment. Up at the top of the park, the views of the city are stunning. The nearby botanic garden and treetop walk are nice and peaceful. Elsewhere in the park, there are numerous walking and jogging paths throughout the park, several cafes, playgrounds with equipment for toddlers up to older children.
  • One of my favorite places in Perth to hang out. It is so nice and peaceful. A great place for family picnic. Ah, don't forget to wait until the sun comes down. It's beautiful to see the city lights from the park.
  • My favourite park! Kings Park has and always will be the best park. I know it sounds so easy to say, but it offers a lot of entertainment. For kids and adults. The view at night time is very beautiful especially when it's clear. I love the sunset there, it is a magnific view. I will come back soon, hopefully it won't be so crowd 🤞🏻

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
