A walk through the tree tops.....

The Lotteries West Federation Walkway (Walkway) was opened in 2003 and is a 620m walk through the Botanical Gardens in Kings Park along a combination of 'on ground' pathways and a spectacular elevated 52m glass and steel arched bridge suspended among a canopy of tall Eucalyptus trees. From the 'Two Rivers Lookout' there are amazing views of the City and the Swan and Canning Rivers, making it one of Kings Park and the Botanical Gardens most popular tourist destinations. There's no charge for walking the bridge but a donation (box at entrance) to The Friends of Kings Park is appreciated. Amongst the list of regulations for the use of the bridge is one that disallows the taking of wedding photos, not sure why, guess it might be an obstruction issue, shame..would make for fabulous pictures.

  1. Love that top photo, Grace. Great perspective. Apologies for the erratic commenting at the moment, things have gone a little hectic since I started my job back in the UK!

  5. This seems to be a "must see" when in Perth. Thanks for visiting HDP and your comments on the blog's first anniversary. Your blog has become a favorite destination of mine in just a few months of operation!

  6. What a great idea. We have a superb botanical garden but we're not hilly enough for something like this - so good for Perth.

  8. Odd rules about the wedding photos. That would be a fun walk.

  9. This is a beautiful design for a walkway/bridge. Sad that it cannot be used for wedding photography but that would likely block access for the general public. Love the eucalyptus trees!

  12. superb images Grace!

    Most of the laws against photography are archaic and need to be revisited as they would have lost their relevance..
