The members meetings are held in the beautiful new 'Green Room' of the Kings Park Education Building, pictured above right. Camouflaged and insulated under a hill and the car park, you can find it by turning right half way along Fraser Avenue, then following the signage to the far end of the Car Park past the Administration Building.

                       Kings Park Brings Desert to Life

Saudi Restoration Project P1030683Kings Park and Botanic Garden is leading a world-first attempt to revegetate arid lands in Saudi Arabia.

The ambitious project is the largest restoration trial of its type ever undertaken in the Middle East.

A key aim of the project is to develop low-cost processes that can be scaled up to potentially revegetate many hundreds or even thousands of square kilometres of arid lands in Saudi Arabia and in the Middle East generally.

A team of horticulturists and restoration scientists from Kings Park has been commissioned to deliver a full conservation strategy including seed collection and storage, establishing nursery processes and practices, and establishing the trial in an area 80kms north of the Saudi capital Riyadh.
