Araluen is a short drive from the Perth CBD, up in the eastern hills. On a clear spring day, it's a great place to visit to enjoy the many tulips that have been planted by volunteers. There are picnic areas and paths to walk to...More
Araluen Botanical Park is a 40 minute drive from the city but if you would like to see a lovely display of tulips in Perth then that is the place to go. The tulip beds are not huge but they are well planned and laid...More

So sorry, I didn’t see this question until now. My answer at any time of year, is to just go. They make a real effort to always have fabulous displays and plants trees and flowers all have their special time of year.
