Perth is one of the most magical cities on Australia’s west coast, but it’s easy to get swept away by all the rush and the noise during your visit. If you want to take some time to rest and relax after running around this bustling metropolis, these public parks will give you just the kind of experience that you’re searching for.
Kings Park and The Botanic Garden
Kings Park and The Botanic Garden is one of the most popular tourist attractions that Perth has in store. Located on the hill of Mount Eliza, this green space is so much more than just a vast bushland area with a beautiful botanical garden. It’s also home to a war memorial dedicated to Western Australian soldiers who lost their lives in World War I and II.
Located in the heart of Perth’s central business district, Queens Gardens offers a much-needed green oasis. It’s nowhere near as big and busy as Kings Park, but it will win you over with its tree-dotted lawns and a beautiful lake filled with swans and water lilies.
Located in the suburb of Highgate, Hyde is one of Perth’s most charming inner-city parks. It’s a popular spot for picnics, barbeques, and weddings, and it’s even home to the annual Hyde Park Fair. There are two tiny groundwater lakes on its premises, adding to its charm.
