The DNA Tower derives its name from the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) double-helix molecule, which is found in all cells and controls the development of life.  It is the highest viewing point in Kings Park with spectacular views throughout the climb. On a clear day you may even be able to see the Indian Ocean.  The park commissioned the construction in 1966 by D&H Fraser Consulting Engineers. The 15m high staircase has 101 steps and was inspired by the famous double staircase in a Chateau in Blois, France.
