The Greatest Wildflower Show on Earth

The Kings Park Festival has been held in September for 55 years and this year the Kings Park Volunteer Guides are excited to offer a selection of special walks we are preparing for the Australasian Botanic Guides Conference next year as part of the festival – The Greatest Wildflower Show on Earth.

To whet your appetite, here’s a sneak preview of walks you may enjoy next year. Our program team is keen to point out that with more than18 walks on the drawing board, nothing is finalised.

A walk on the quiet side – discover the Place of Reflection, a tranquil part of Kings Park away from the crowds.

In the footsteps of women – from the ancient role of Aboriginal women using plants for food and medicine to the modern contribution of all Western Australian women.

Connecting the park to the river – take in spectacular views of the Swan River and learn how Kings Park and the river are bound together historically and geographically.

Nature in art – plants inspire art and art enhances the natural environment so what better place to discover magnificent artworks than in the Western Australian Botanic Garden.

Kings Park is brimming with colour. Here’s a taste of what to expect next year. Two of our talented Guides have been roaming the park in the last few days getting some great shots.
