Stirling Gardens

Perth’s oldest garden is an ideal space for reflection amongst the hustle and bustle of the CBD.

Located on the corner of St Georges Tce and Barrack St, Stirling Gardens is a tranquil oasis in the centre of the city; offering meandering pathways, beautiful shade, manicured lawns and an extensive range of plants and trees. There are also a number of interesting sculptures, most noticeable are the large kangaroos at the North Boundary, iconic gumnut babies - Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, the Ore Obelisk and a mosaic water feature.

Check out the helpful Event Guidelines here. 

City of Perth wishes to advise that Stirling Gardens is currently unavailable for event/wedding bookings.
