Kings Park Festival 2011
An awesome day out for the whole family


If you're like me and you love the outdoors, but don't have the time to travel, then I think I know just the event for you - the 2011 Kings Park Festival. For the 48th year running, the festival has given thousands of city goers a chance to experience the beautiful bushland that is abundant here in Western Australia.

The festival celebrates the International Year of Forests, and trust me, there is no better place to celebrate trees than the stunning Western Australian Botanic Garden. You can chill out and walk through the gardens and check out a huge variety of magnificent trees ranging from a giant boab tree that was transported all the way from the Kimberley, to the incredible karri trees that can be viewed from the Lotterywest Federation Walkway.

Of course the festival isn't just about trees. Throughout the month-long event there are activities that the whole family can enjoy such as art and gardening workshops, free live music every Sunday and children's shows. There's also an outdoor photo exhibition, a native plant sale, and a brand new walk that explores how the Nyoongar people lived off the land for thousands of years.

Since there's just too many great events to list in this article, so I'll leave you with a list of some highlights to look out for:

Tour the Botanical Gardens with a Kings Park Horticulturalist
Art of Propagation
Meet the Artists at Aspects Gallery
Dig it with Coffee
Art of Grafting
