Burswood Park has a long and glorious history, most famously known, between 1988 to 2013, for the Burswood Golf Course, its attractive manicured gardens and floral displays. It is now a significant parkland that surrounds Western Australia’s only six star resort, the Crown Perth Resort and, at present, the third largest stadium in Australia, Optus Stadium.

Burswood Park has some spectacular views, attractions and facilities at its doorstep. Visitors can enjoy wonderful views of the Swan river and the Perth city skyline, walk towards and across the newly opened pedestrian bridge (Matagarup Bridge) and soak in the spectacular landscape architecture on offer.
