To start off, Kings Park, the most popular tourist destination in the city of Perth, was one of the big ones on my list of things to do while here. And it didn't disappoint.
We only spent a short time there, but you could easily spend the whole day. Calling it a massive park is an understatement, so even on a weekend day, you'll never find it too busy. Bring a picnic (and plenty sun lotion, especially if it's December!) and enjoy the peace and sunshine lounging amongst the trees, plants and fountains.
The park is also a botanical garden, so those that are interested in plants will definitely enjoy that aspect!
Don't only look at the view over the city and river either. Keep an eye up towards the tree tops and you can glimpse many birds, occasionally even parrots! Then if you tilt your gaze down at the pathways, there's quotes and life-mottos printed in the cement, for a lovely, personal touch.
