The Australian Hotels Association (WA) has congratulated the Cook Government on the news that visitors to Kings Park can stay and sleep under the stars as part of a groundbreaking accommodation initiative being trialled this winter.

It will be the very first time that visitors can stay overnight in the park.

The accommodation, to be operated by WA-based provider Heyscape, will comprise eco-friendly cabins with a bed, kitchenette, Wi-Fi and environmentally friendly bathroom amenities. Prices start at $495 per night, with a minimum two-night stay.

The trial will run from 7 June to 28 July and coincide with Lightscape, an immersive light and sound experience that attracted close to 180,000 visitors last year.

AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods warmly welcomed the proposal, describing it as a fantastic new tourism product and one that Perth and Western Australia needs.

“Kings Park is one of Perth’s best-known tourist destinations, but it’s generally only visited during the day, so to have the chance to sleep under the stars in this iconic location is an exciting one that will have people talking,” said Mr Woods.

“It will be a truly special experience, giving tourists unique memories of our city that few others will ever hold,” he said.

“The WA Government is to be congratulated on bringing this initiative to life, as it’s an important step in leveraging unique opportunities and balancing environmental protection.”
