healing through nature

The Compassionate friends worked together with four other community

organisations to bring the vision of the Place of Reflection to life.


The Place of Reflection is a contemplative space that is available to everyone in the community. This beautiful and tranquil site – set in the magnificent Kings Park and Botanic Garden, just 1.5 kilometres from the Perth central business district – provides a place of commemoration and healing for people coping with loss in everyday life.

The Place of Reflection is set in a secluded space within the park’s Botanic Garden, surrounded by natural bushland. Walking paths, contemplation decks and seating provide opportunities for individual reflection and quiet discussion, while the Marlee Pavilion provides a sheltered and inspirational space where groups can hold organised events. The site is softly lit into the early evening, to beautiful effect.

The Place of Reflection is a new and precious resource for the Western Australian community: a protected space where loss is felt and acknowledged, where loved ones are remembered and where nature encourages the seeking of understanding, healing, hope and renewal
