Take a spring time stroll through the Western Australian Botanic Garden

The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, it must be spring! Enjoy a free guided walk around the WA Botanic Garden this September and learn more about the 25,000 native plants and hundreds of wildflowers species that will be in bloom. Several walks run daily on a range of interesting topics from boab trees and birds, to art and history and everlastings to eucalypts so you’re sure to find something to suit the whole family. 

Check out the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ outdoor photography exhibition

Featuring epic WA landscapes captured by renowned nature photographer David Bettini, you’ll be in awe of WA’s stunning scenery from our ancient Kimberley region to our sparkling coral coast and our rugged south west. 

Enjoy a wellness event

Whether it’s a mediation, tai chi, yoga or fitness class, you’ll feel any stress melt away as you work out in the beautiful surrounds of May Drive Parkland with one of our wellness gurus.

Chill out at the Botanic Base

With live acoustic musicians, lawn games and deck chairs, the Botanic Base is perfect for weekend chill-out sessions. Pack a picnic or visit one of the cafes or kiosks onsite and enjoy the spring sunshine. Keep an eye out for our wandering wildflower characters, the Adorable Florables.
