If you are in Kings Park for the first time then find a reason to stroll on down to the Tower and make the climb. The view is worth it. Plenty of nearby parking if you are driving or a short walk from Fraser Ave.

This is great for the kids to race up the stairs to the top. There is a bit of a view of the park but not the CBD. Great place to picnic.

This is just a simple intertwining tower but provides so much for Kings Park. It has been here for as long as I can remember. It provides entertainment and exercise in reaching the top. It has several platforms along the way. Kids are often seen...More

It is a good hike to the top but very safe and easy enough if you take your time and worth it when you get to the top - the views are fantastic and help put Perth in perspective. Make sure you wear sunblock and...More
