The Law Walk through the bushland and the Lotterywest Federation Walkway in the heart of the Botanic Garden in Kings Park, provides the best of both worlds. The manicured gardens and views of Kings Park transition to natural bush including a bird’s eye view of what the Perth bushland was like more than 200 years ago.

Kings Park, named in 1901 after King Edward VII, is an icon of Perth.  Protected two years after the European settlement of the Swan River Colony, it has kilometres of trails ranging from wheelchair access to sandy rough tracks.

Commencing at the entrance to the State Botanic Garden on Fraser Avenue (to the right of the State War Memorial when facing the river), Law Walk continues to the Dryandra lookout via a paved path (that is steep in places) through the bushland on the edge of the Mt Eliza escarpment.  The return walk is on a sandy trail through the bush, rejoining the paved path.  It joins up with the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, which includes an elevated walk through the Botanic Garden and a tree top view of majestic marri and jarrah trees. The walkway is open daily 9am - 5pm, and entry is free. 

Along both walks there are spectacular views of Kings Park, Perth City, Matilda Bay the Swan and Canning Rivers. The lookouts have interpretive signs, trees and shrubs are identified and Indigenous stories are explained in relevant places along the walks.  These walks provide a wonderful insight into the special Western Australian environment, and provide one of the best experiences possible in the City area.

This is one of many trails in Kings Park.
