The 2020 Kings Park Festival returns this September with the world’s biggest and most beautiful display of Western Australian wildflowers.

Celebrating ‘Perth’s Green Heart,’ the festival offers dozens of free and fabulous events for nature lovers, garden gurus, and those with an interest in conservation and the beautiful Western Australian environment.

Preparation for the festival begins a year in advance, with an army of passionate horticulturists and volunteers producing the plants from seed. This year will see more than 25,000 plants and hundreds of wildflower varieties bursting into bloom, heralding the start of spring in the South West of WA.

With ‘Instagrammable’ spots around every corner, there will be plenty of opportunities to get back to nature with guided walks, an outdoor photography display, and outdoor wellness classes, as well as 17 hectares of the beautiful Western Australian Botanic Garden to explore.

You can enjoy a guided walk through the WA Botanic Garden, Kings Park Bushland or Bold Park with their expert volunteers and staff, or get your native gardening tips at a ‘Dig it With Coffee’ session run weekly during September.

For a deeper look at the WA environment, tune into informative science webinars hosted by the passionate environmental scientists and conservationists and learn more about our local fauna.

If you fancy something a bit more active  – Join the GoGo Active Tours on a wildflower bike tour and the crew at The Hike Collective for a ‘High Tea and Guided Hike’ through some of Kings Park’s wildflower hotspots.

After all the sightseeing, you will be able to relax in the spring sunshine and enjoy acoustic music in several of the parkland precincts on select weekends.

Running from 1 – 30 September, it’s time to start gathering your friends and lock in a weekend to enjoy the beginning of spring in Perth’s favourite park.
