  • I proposed to my wife here. I believe Kings Park has to be one the most beautiful inner city parks in the world. It show cases natural plants and trees unique to Australia. The views of the Perth City skyline from here are stunning. This is also a beautiful landscape featuring memorials to the fallen of Australia's service men and women. This is also the primary location in Perth for the ANZAC day dawn service.
  • The Views of the City and the Swan River are stunning Day or Night. An awesome place for Mindfulness with dozens of different species of West Australian and some migratory species of bird life. This is a great place with the spirit of community. Kids and families are always to be seen having fun with each other in any part it's multiple parks area's. Get some peaceful down time for yourself and your family this is the best place for you time...
  • We went to Sticky Beaks for a child's birthday party. It is a great spot for families with great playgrounds. On of many good spots in a beautiful park.
  • Really popular for tourists and health conscious people. This place has beautiful scenic lookout points and a few tracks for walking/running/exercising. This place could do with a bit of an upgrade on their cafe's, and food outlets.
  • Incredible parks and gardens with city views. ANZAC dawn service here is a must Bring a picnic and use the BBQ's for a peaceful day with friends and family. Kids play grounds or open lawns to choose from. Lots of history with monuments and memorials too .

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.
