The DNA Tower is a double helix lookout tower in King’s Park Perth.
This lookout consists of two spiral staircases to the top of the lookout tower. The DNA Tower is so named because it resembles the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) double-helix molecule, which is found in all cells and control the development of life.
The tower was constructed in 1966 by D&H Fraser Consulting Engineers. The 15m high staircase has 101 steps and was inspired by a double staircase in a Chateau at Blois in France.
