The park cultivates over 13,000 species of Western Australian plants and contains one of the world's largest areas of natural bush land close to a city.
King's Park has so many aspects that it is difficult to describe in one review. From sweeping views of the city and Swan River, to carefully tended paths through native plants it is one experience not to miss when visiting Perth. One of my favorite walks is the Law Walk which is around 3km long and winds through bush of various types with bottlebrushes, native orchids and other wildflowers in season, up and down hills. The air is so clean and smells great. There is a water Gardens with Fountains that the kids love. There are also a couple of sections of the park set aside for kids with statues to climb on, climbing frames, more ponds and Fountains. There are a wealth of eating spots scattered through the park: two restaurants, two cafes and plenty of barbecues which serve pretty good meals. There is a gift shop with many great choices for presents and souvenirs - not so cheap. In all, if you a looking for a healthy day out with the family or just seeing the sites, it is a must see. Entry is free and there is a good bus service that connects with the city.

My review title is pretty self explanatory- I like the big open space and think the water features are nice (including Japanese area) but the public toilets are gross and the parking nearby at the casino suck. I also would not feel safe (due to previous news coverage of attacks near the casino) to walk around at night.

Always enjoy walks along the South Perth foreshore. Great views over the rver and across to Perth. Combine it with a circular walk across The Narrows and Causway for great views. Look out for any dolphins too ?

Tomato Lake offers everything - heaps of grass for picnics, BBQ’s, play ground equipment, gym equipment, basketball square, two walking/running/riding tracks, and a cafe.
Often there are City of Belmont events at Tomato Lake. Certainly in summer you’ll find people here daily!
Am so blessed this is my local park - will continue to visit and always recommend to others.

I bought my grand daughter a session at iFly as a Christmas present. I was impressed by the level of organisation at the centre, and she was fully briefed and trained before being kitted out for the actual experience. As she said 'AWESOME' and it...MoreThank you for the delightful review. We are so thrilled to hear it was an exciting experience for you and your grand daughter, and look forward to seeing you again soon, perhaps both of you in the wind next time!

BOUNCE is a world where the wall becomes the floor, a slam-dunk is within your grasp and the rules of gravity no longer apply. It's packed with lots of things to do with kids and the family. BOUNCE takes the rush of getting airborne and adds a bunch of new dimensions - from aerial manoeuvres to slam dunking, wall running and dodgeball warfare. The best part is it doesn't matter if you're under 5 or an action sports junkie in training - you're never too old or too young to have an awesome time. With more than 100 interconnected trampolines housed within huge, colourful spaces at a growing number of locations around Australia, BOUNCE is a spring-loaded urban playground with a wide range of things to do with kids; where hard surfaces are replaced with circus-grade sponge, giant air bags and Springs. The rush of BOUNCE is infectious. Look around and everyone's buzzing, whether they're running up The Wall, launching into the Big Bag or loosening up in the Free Jump arena. It can be as easy or as challenging as you like - a training ground for aerial sports acrobatics, a place to kick back and look out over the action, or just a hard-core form of exercise that lets you burn energy without noticing you're in the middle of a cardio workout. And our friendly staff are always there to offer safety tips and show you a few moves along the way.
We took our grandsons (9, 11 and 13) to Bounce and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We thought it was very well-organised and we were impressed with the safety element. We like the fact that there was a cap to the number of customers per hour. The guy managing the Dodge Ball was very good and the timing of each Dodge Ball session was not too long, making the queue manageable for the kids. It was an enjoyable session for the youngsters as well as for the people watching.

After being at the Crown in Melbourne lots of times, I expected much of the same in Perth. I really didn't like the machines there where are the 1 cent machines? I asked where they were and was sent up to the other end of the casino not finding them there. I asked again and was sent down the other end, in the end I didn't find them and had to contend with playing 2 cents machines. I used my Rewards card and was told I could transfer my points back to Melbourne, but when I tried to do this at the VIK machine it wouldn't work it directed me to the Rewards desk. The staff member there couldn't explain it and had me try it again twice more when it still wouldn't do it. I was told to wait until I got back to Melbourne and try it there. Must have been to much bother for her. This was a one off experience for us, I doubt we will ever be back in Perth. Also we found the eateries around the casino very expensive, because we met up with a friend who had children with her it limited where we could go. In the end we settled for Merrywell but it would have been good to have been given more choices.

As always, I make it a point to visit memorials wherever I go. Seeing this memorial up on a very high mountain made me more determined to get there. The memorial can be accessed via car, bus, cabs, etc. I walked from the CBD along Elizabeth Quay and the motorway - across a very long bridge to reach the hospital, and from there found Jacob’s ladder and climbed the 244 steps - panting and breathless.
It was all worth it. There were several memorials up in King’s Park. I took my time to check them out.
Wear sensible and comfortable shoes unless you drive directly up to the park. I enjoyed my walk around the place though there was a big crowd at the entrance due to “Ride for Youth” cycling event.
King’s Park adjoins the Botanic Gardens of WA hence after a nice little lunch or drink at the cafes there, you can walk through the Gardens and enjoy the native and foreign plants such as the giant Baobab.
I returned to the city via the Kokoda Trail - warning: very steep and roughly hewn steps into the mountain. Tread warily.
At the bottom, I turned left and walked towards Perth Hospital and caught a free bus (950) ride to the city.

Located just minutes from Perth City, Perth Zoo is a convenient and beautiful way to meet Australia's incredible wildlife. Ever wanted to immerse yourself in the Aussie outback but have Asia's stunning rainforests and Africa's wild savannah right around the corner?

Open every day of the year, Perth Zoo inspires and directs all work to save wildlife. Go for a bushwalk and discover the best of Australia's wildlife including koalas, emus, wallabies, kangaroos and our enormous saltwater crocodile, Simmo.

You can explore at your own pace or take advantage of the many Zoo docent volunteers who have a myriad of stories to tell and help unlock some of the hidden secrets of the Zoo. With at least half a day needed to see the Zoo, we recommend a full day to make your experience the best it possibly can be! The carousel, wagon hire, zebra car rides, keeper presentations, free electric BBQ's, picnic tables and cafe make the experience all the more worth it. For the more adventurous get up close and book a daily Eye to Eye experience - you might feed a giraffe, pat a rock wallaby or meet our quokka!
We were looking for a way to be outside on a beastly hot day and opted for an 8 minute ferry ride to the zoo in South Perth. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely, thoughtful exhibits, the gorgeous vegetation, and the many, many animals we saw. We intended to stay a couple of hours, but ended up roaming throughout the zoo for five. We would have stayed longer, but the zoo was closing.
What a treasure!

The nostalgia box was one of the more unique experiences I’ve had in Perth. The staff were very friendly, talkative and helpful. I paid for entrance and walked around, looking at displays of video game consoles through the ages, then later got to play several consoles. You can play pong, Mario Kart 64, Super Mario Bros on NES and more. There is also a shop with a variety of things to buy. I loved it. I’ll go back if I return to Perth.
