Queens Gardens, Perth

(200+ reviews on the web)
Garden Nature / Park
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." Our Perth family vacation planner makes visiting Queens Gardens and other Perth attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful gardens. We got married here and the beauty of the gardens was captured in our wedding photos
  • Peaceful and relaxing especially for families... Recommended park in perth with beautiful surroundings including the Black Swan
  • An old quarry turned into pristine gardens. Many people come here to wed in the huge open gazebo and pretty surroundings. Ducks, lilipads and monet-inspired bridges galore! Grab a picnic basket, a good book, or the like - you'll be pleasantly surprised! Plenty of shade and clean restrooms.
  • A lovely place to chill and maybe even treat a book while watching black swans chase each other.
  • Beautiful park, perfect to relax, lots of grass to sit down an have a quiet moment, picnic or read a book. You can also find the original chair used in Notting Hill and replica of a Peter pan statue.
