Flocked by over five million people every year, the King's Park & Botanic Garden is one of the most popular destinations of Western Australia. Nestled along the shores of Swan River, the park faces the bustling Central Business District of the city. Sprawling across a massive area of 400 hectares (990 acres), the park boasts of national monuments and memorials. Tranquil pathways lined with a variety of Eucalyptus trees lead to dramatic vantage points, vibrant flowerbeds or grassy meadows where locals and tourists bask under the glorious sun. The park's major attraction is its colorful botanical garden, boasting of 2000 species of endemic flora. A recreational hub, the park plays host to several flower festivals, exhibitions, and live music performances. Come nightfall, the park is the perfect place to enjoy the bedazzled skyline of the city juxtaposed against the starry night sky.
