Queens Gardens, Perth

4.6
#5 of 18 in Parks in Perth
Located on a former brickworks site, Queens Gardens includes lakes filled with water lilies, huge displays of flowers, sprawling lawns, and a Peter Pan statue, replicated from a figure located in London’s Kensington Gardens. The park opened to the public in 1898, and during the years leading up to World War I, often served as an elegant garden party venue. A bench located at the very center of the park was gifted to the city of Perth by an anonymous donor, after a failed marriage proposal to his girlfriend. The bench, featured in the movie "Notting Hill," is inscribed "To June who loved this garden from Joseph who always sat beside her."

  • An awesome little park near the heart of the city. A beautiful lunch spot. Would be amazing for picnics if the weather is nice and when lillies and flowers are everywhere.
  • Great spot for a picnic! Lovely quiet green areas, lots of birds, and beautiful plants, and trees.
  • Beautiful gardens. We got married here and the beauty of the gardens was captured in our wedding photos
  • Nice well maintained accessible park. Limited shelter options available though.
  • Beautiful park to walk through or have a picnic on a lovely summers day

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.
