Kings Meadow Reserve
If you’re in the mood for a picnic lunch, it doesn’t get much better than Kings Meadow. This relaxing riverside location has BBQ facilities and a dedicated picnic area in place, right where the Helena River and Swan meet. It’s a great spot to sit and relax, but be mindful of snakes during the summer months because the area where the two rivers meet is a frog habitat!
