Perth 2010: DAY 2 - Kings Park (Finale) DNA Tower

The last highlight on this huge botanical garden cum park in Perth is the unique structure of the DNA Tower, which was built in the same remodeling after the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) after which it was named.

As you can see, the double helix architecture closely resembled that of the DNA molecule structure in reality.
It was not a tower at a staggering height and was pretty manageable to climb up on foot.

Furthermore, there were at least two lookout points after each course of the stairs before you reach the top for those who would like to take a break before making it all up in one breath.
At the same time, it only takes about 5-7 minutes to make your way to the top where a scenic view of the city and the park awaits you

Spotted a fat white and black raven on the lawn (I noticed that all their birds/ravens are really huge in size!)

After visiting the DNA tower, it was soon time to leave Kings Park.

It was truly an enriching not to mention a refreshing experience at this park which is nothing short of simple extravagance.

I was truly wrong to think that it only had nature to offer; with its vast greenery and perfectly manicured lawns, it was truly a place for all to be.

It is a place not to be missed if one were to ever visit Perth.

It was no wonder that it is one of the city's top attraction when you google for the tourist spots or places to visit in Perth.

September was definitely a great month to be there, to enjoy for oneself the awesome display of nature's works in the blooming exotic florals.

I am already missing the place as I look at all the photos and I hope you enjoyed the views and sceneries as much as I enjoyed sharing and writing about them (sorry for the several posts though!)
