Located on Mount Eliza and overlooking Perth Water, Kings Park War Memorial houses the Cenotaph, a well-known city landmark. Erected in honor of all Australian soldiers whose remains are buried elsewhere, the Cenotaph represents an "empty tomb." Anzac Day is a national holiday observed in April to honor Australians and New Zealanders who served in the military and died in wars and peacekeeping operations. On Anzac Day, a service is held at the memorial that attracts over 40,000 visitors. At this site, you can also visit the flame of remembrance and a pool of reflection, inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000.

  • Lovely view of downtown Perth. The lawns are well kept and make for a comfy lay. Palm trees and flowers in abundance make for happy feelings. A really old tree was moved to the park which is interesting to check out. Some really cool fountains and bridges are around the area.
