Nearly two thirds of the Kings Park is natural bushland - making it a nature lovers paradise.

Kings Park is one of the largest inner city parks in the world, and the best way to get around is by foot on one of the many walking trails.

Memorials Walk

Visitors will take in stunning views of the Swan River and Perth's CBD as they pass the State War Memorial, Lord John Forrest statue, entrance to the Western Australian Botanic Garden and Lotterywest Federation Walkway. The walk concludes near Aspects of Kings Park, in the Fraser Avenue Precinct.

Botanic Garden Discovery Walk

There are two walks to enjoy through the Western Australian Botanic Garden. The Short Walk is 20 minutes one way, or 40 minutes return.

It is an easy 1.5 km walk from Synergy Parkland and the Western Australian Botanic Garden.

An open mia mia structure marks the entry of the trail, with a mosaic depicting the Menzies Banksia, Banksia menziesii. Suitable for most groups including families and people with disabilities.

Kokoda Track

The Kokoda Track Memorial Walk is a tribute to the bravery of Australian troops who fought in the Papua New Guinea campaign of July 1942 - January 1943. The Kokoda Walk begins at Kennedy Fountain on Mounts Bay Road with a climb of 150 steep steps (with a vertical rise of 62 metres). Follow the plaques along the steps to the State War Memorial where the track ends, just north of the cenotaph. Please note that this walk does not have wheelchair or pram access.

Boodja Gnarning Walk
