Kings Park - Perth (Western Australia)


A lovely morning start at Mandurah, quite exciting to see the dolphins flipping up and down in the water, lunching over fish and chips and back to the harbour. Later we came over to Kings Park - a popular visitor destination, located in Western Australia and packed with lots of people on this Saturday. Apparently, a similar scene as in other parks elsewhere, where people want to enjoy nature, fresh air and thereafter, do nothing, but just relax.

As I walked into this 1,003 acre compound, I couldn't help but disagree with my Malaysian friends who described Kings Park as a boring place. How wrong they were. I certainly don't agree. Perhaps enjoying nature is not their cup of tea, neither they they like the long leisurely walk. Beats me though why? Whichever and whatever, I love Kings Park very much. Such a beauty, where besides doing nothing, you can picnic, just lazily veg on the grass, get lovey-dovey with your loved ones or just stare far out to unwind, Also, with its atmosphere being for couples to tie the knot, obviously, Kings Park must be a popular ground for weddings prior to posing and taking pictures. Besides the immaculate lawns, huge trees and natural bushland, there are a couple of significant historical buildings, including the State War Memorial. constructed in 1928 and completed on 24th November, 1929. Standing right atop there, I bet you will be mesmerised with the broad spectrum of  Perth city, overlooking the Swan River and Darling Range.




















For the next two hours, we walked, we talked, we enjoyed the view and on our way out, we glanced at the Queen Victoria's statue and left Kings Park, carrying with us our fond memories.

Show some love by trending alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
