We walked around the gardens early one morning on our way to the Elizabeth Quay where the Bell Tower is and found the place peaceful and quiet despite it's apparently a thoroughfare for quite a lot of city dwellers on their way to the work place in the city centre. It's just situated behind the Government House and access is... More

The Supreme Court Gardens were formed following the reclamation of the Swan River shallows in 1903 and planted as gardens in 1920. Supreme Court Gardens are part of an important open space area in the Central Business District. These gardens are truly wonderful but often are closed to the public. Check the internet before planning on going there for a... More

The Supreme Court building is a firm statement of the colonists’ faith in justice and in their own destiny. It is “a fine example of the Federation Academic Classical architectural style often used in public buildings in the early 1900s.” This can be seen in the imposing façade, with portico, columns recalling Greek and roman styles and with an even...

Not a lot to do but the gardens are well kept. brought a coffee and takeaway lunch and ate here on the grass. Cute Kangaroo statues to look at and if you know where they are there is a Snugglepot statue as well, hidden in the garden.

The Supreme Court Garden is right in the middle of the city, but could be miles away from everywhere. If you are in the city, it is no effort at all to visit the Gardens for the time out from the hustle and bushel of the city.

The afternoon heat caught me and lucky me I saw this garden with lots of greens and ducks wandering around. Such a nice place to hang out to get some rest on the grass or the bench and thought about how lucky I am to be in Perth. I love the colourful flowers and the sounds of the birds around.... More

A great place to chill out and relax in the centre of the city. Cool, shady and green. Plenty of shady seats or lawns to relax on.
