Kings Park Festival: Where the Wildflowers Are

It used to be Kings Park Wildflower Festival, but now it’s Kings Park Festival.

There’s no doubt Kings Park will be where the wildflowers are this September, with the largest presentation of WA’s blooming beauties from all across the state. Kings Park will transform into a rainbow of colour and movement and we want you to join us in the celebration.

They still have wildflowers, but this year it seemed a lot less going on than in other years. It was still a beautiful event with flowers and plants to see.

But the star of the festival for me, or perhaps the co-star, is the everlastings.
