GardenDrumKings Park Festival in Perth, WA

The 2017 Kings Park Festival is celebrating ‘Where the Wildflowers Are’ during September when Western Australian wildflowers will form the stunning backdrop to a month of activities.

Kings Park in Perth, Western Australia, is bursting with colours and shapes of wildflowers in bloom and you can take a self-guided walk amongst the spectacle. ‘Where the Wildflowers are Trail’ allows you to curate your own trail whether you are short on time, or want a more leisurely stroll. Design your own walk taking 30, 60 or 90 minutes and see up to 40 stunning wildflowers along the route at your own pace – with paths suitable for wheelchairs and prams.

Other Festival features are the ‘Wax and Kangaroo Paw Garden’, brimming with 700 individual plants and 30 species of Wax and Kangaroo Paw, and the ‘Desert Garden’, with several unusual species such as Lambs’ tails (Lachnostachys verbascifolia), Royal Mulla Mulla (Ptilotus rotundifolius) and Leptosema chambersii.

New additions to see during your visit include 500 new species of Eucalyptus, Grevillea and Acacia recently planted near the Botanic Pavilion.

Another Festival feature is a stunning ephemeral sculpture ‘Woven Wildernest’ designed by artist Sally Stoneman that incorporates hundreds of native wildflowers.

These exciting flower and sculpture displays are free to visit.
