The place

The original intent for the Place of Reflection was to create a public reflective space of significance for the people of Western Australia that would be universally accessible and that would recognise the needs of a multicultural community, now and for generations to come.

This vision has been realised in a most spectacular way.

The Place of Reflection occupies 700 square metres of one of the most scenic parts of Kings Park, in the beautiful Roe Gardens, high on the Mt Eliza escarpment. Fringed by a canopy of trees, this elevated site provides glimpses of the cityscape, the Swan River flowing by below and the Darling Ranges far beyond. It offers individuals a protected place for quiet contemplation of their loss, while still feeling connected to the cycle of life that is visible all around them.

On entering the Place of Reflection, visitors find themselves in the heart of nature where the sun, dramatic skies, poetic shifts of light and shade, the flow of water and breezes, the sounds of birds and the fragrances of the Australian bush envelop them. This simple and quiet transition from everyday life to a tranquil place of reflection is intended to be both transformative and restorative.

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.
