Welcome to the Place of Reflection,
Kings Park

Perth, Western Australia

The Place of Reflection is a contemplative space that is available to everyone in the community. This beautiful and tranquil site – set in the magnificent Kings Park and Botanic Garden, just 1.5 kilometres from the Perth central business district – provides a place of commemoration and healing for people coping with loss in everyday life.

The Place of Reflection is set in a secluded space within the park’s Botanic Garden, surrounded by natural bushland. Walking paths, contemplation decks and seating provide opportunities for individual reflection and quiet discussion, while the Marlee Pavilion provides a sheltered and inspirational space where groups can hold organised events. The site is softly lit into the early evening, to beautiful effect. 

The Place of Reflection is a precious resource for the Western Australian community: a protected space where loss is felt and acknowledged, where loved ones are remembered and where nature encourages the seeking of understanding, healing, hope and renewal. 

The following organisations worked together to bring the Place of Reflection vision to life:

Association for Services to Torture and Trauma Survivors (ASeTTS); Healing Hearts Foundation (founded by the Rotary Club of Heirisson); Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Kids WA; The Compassionate Friends WA; Soroptimist International of South Perth; Lotterywest; Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority; and Friends of Kings Park.
