The Kings Park and Botanic Garden, located in Perth of Western Australia, is the most important and popular tourist attraction of the region. The Swan River flows through by the side of the park and adds more compliment to sight-seeing. It covers a huge area and hence millions of people visit the park every year. The Kings Park is named so in order to pay tribute to the honorable English emperor, King Edward VII. A lot of memorials are situated at this park to remember the patriots who met with death while doing services for the nation.

Botanic Garden

The Kings Botanic garden features with huge areas of wild-flower plants which are typically West-Australian. Botanic garden is such a wonderful sight and would be a perfect time-passing for picnics, drying under the sun, for attending wedding celebrations, musical events and many other similar events. The garden has got a very pretty and magnificent view during the night-time with a row of lights across the garden. The international tourists would be finding it much more interesting as they are new to this floral spot.
