The DNA Tower is actually like a strand of DNA, the basis of human life, as discovered by Crick and Watson. It's quite a climb to get to the top -- the view is magnificent. It's in King's Park -- a bit isolated but it's...More

I've loved coming here since i was a kid. I'm happy they've kept it as it's always been a big park of my memories of kings park. It's easy to walk to and you can enjoy a nice look at the gardens before climbing this...More

I’ve been climbing this tower since I was a kid. Used to have sweeping views of the city and western suburbs but trees now block most of these views. Still worth climbing up.

A simple climb in the gardens. I just didn't get the feeling it was that safe for younger kids so they felt excluded.

Easy climb to the top for views of the surrounding area. Located in King's Park. Good way for the kids to get rid of excessive energy.

Located in King's Park botanical gardens, this attraction was not easy to find as the sign posts were confusing. We eventually got there and climbed the 100+ steps. The view from the top is good but don't expect city views. It was a windy day...More

Nice views from the top, not overly strenuous to get up, and something interesting to do for exercise. Hige big grassy areas in front great for running or picnics, meditation, what have you. Close to toilets and there's a bit of parking. Lovely setting.

Wouldn't class this an essential experience on your visit to Kings Park as views aren't that much better than you can get from various ground level points
