Number One place for tourists visiting Perth City is Kings Park – a magnificent park, memorial and botanic garden situated on Mt Eliza overlooking the City of Perth and Swan River with an area of just over 400.hectares making it one of the largest City parks in the world.
The tall trees lining the avenues within the park are memorials to the fallen in two World Wars and other engagements.
The State War Memorial overlooks Perth and the Swan River. The 18.metre granite obelisk honours all Western Australians who gave their lives in the service of their country. On the inside walls of the area below the obelisk lists names of those lost. Here is also the Court of Contemplation, Flame of Remembrance and Pool of Reflection.
