Mount Eliza is a hill which overlooks the city of Perth, Western Australia and forms part of Kings Park. In 1890 450 acres of land adjoining Reserve 11A was added to create Reserve 1720 as 'Public Park, Mt Eliza'. Construction of the Mt Eliza Reservoir for Perth's water supply commenced on land excised from the Park.
