Magnificent Kings Park has an area of just over 400 hectares on Mount Eliza, overlooking to the east: the City of Perth and the Swan River towards Victoria Park and to the south: across the Swan River towards Applecross. Within the grounds are many points of interest. There are more memorials and statues here than any other park in Australia.
A location not previously mentioned in our blog is the very large lawned picnic area around the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Fountain that is also used in the warmer months for outdoor concerts. The lawn continues down the hill, following the water course from the Fountain to a water garden and meets one end of the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, across the Glass Bridge with beautiful views over the historic Swan Brewery building. The Walkway continues past a large boab tree and on to the Sir John Forrest statue, lined with wildflowers and on to more gardens. This large area is but just a small portion of the overall, majestic Kings Park.
