Kings park becomes even more spectacular as the flowers flourish in the vast Botanic garden across the park. Head here for a lovely days walk, and bring along a picnic to further enjoy the beauty of this very special place!

Bees will dance from flower to flower as you hike past them, enjoying beautiful vistas of the surrounding hills along the way.
Whiteman Park is an excellent spot to take a nice long walk amongst nature, without having to travel too far out into the country!
