Good Reasons To Visit Perth:
Kings Park is one of Western Australia's most famous parks and botanic gardens. It is overlooking the Perth CBD and the Swan River. It is also one of Perths most popular tourist attractions.
The plants and trees are mostly native Western Australian. The main Entrance into Kings Park is surrounded with outstanding botanic gardens.
There are many war memorials in Kings Park and every year by the largest one there is an ANZAC service. It is held every year on the edge of the park, just overlooking Perth City.
There is also a giant grassed area which, in the middle has three giant fountains of different sizes that go off every minute or so.
When in Kings Park, don't forget to take your camera, there are too many wonderful sights to see and remember so why not have a photograph, they last a lot longer than memories.
Kings Park is a great place to go with the family, have a day together, whilst seeing wonderful sights and having a little picnic.

Sci-tech is a great place for families to explore and learn about science.
There are many different exhibits and puppet shows that help people of all ages to understand many things about science.
One year, Sci-Tech brought and exhibit to our school, and it was a small dome with all of the star constallations, and why the star signs have got their names and what they mean.
Sci-tech also does road shows, but they are mainly for schools. When they do road shows they have small presentations on lots of random science to do with anything they feel like doing.
Sci-tech is all about helping people to understand how the world works an when everything started.
It is a great place for families who are very adventurous and want to learn in a fun way.
