Kings Park Festival 2008
7. Kings Park Festival 2008 

Wildflowers of Western Australia, including Everlastings, Kangaroo Paw, Boronia, Sturt's Desert Pea, Wattle, Featherflower, Qualup Bell, Eremophila, Geraldton Wax, Verticordia, Grevillea, Hakea, and many other species, make a colourful display at the 2008 Kings Park Festival. Of special interest is the 750 year-old Giant Boab (Adansonia gregorii) which was recently transported over 3,200 kms from the Kimberley Region as a gift from the Indigenous Gija people to the people of Western Australia. 'Gija Jumulu' is a majestic tree which will hopefully adjust to its new location and live for many more years.

Kings Park in December
13. Kings Park in December  (December 2010)
A dazzling display of Kangaroo Paws greet the visitors to Kings Park in December. On this visit I was fortunate to add to my wildflower collection with species of Verticordias, Eremophilas, Banksias, Mallees and the critically endangered Ghost Wattle in the conservation section of Kings Park, many of which I had not previously photographed. Irrespective of the time of the year, there are always Wildflowers to be found in the park.

Naturescape
20. Naturescape  (September 2012)
Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is a place for children to connect with nature and learn to appreciate the unique Western Australian environment.
It is a place to explore, climb rocks and ropes, wade through creeks, build cubbies and get dirty. This area is not a playground or picnic area. It has been designed to retain as much of its natural bush setting as possible. Great care has been taken to provide children with a real ‘bush’ experience in the middle of the city of Perth.

Synergy Parkland
21. Synergy Parkland  (21 September 2010)

Synergy Parkland, located at the western end of Kings Park, is home to a new Backyard Botanicals garden, where the ‘grow-me-at-home’ garden demonstrates how easy it is to grow Western Australian native plants. The new garden showcases native plants that are hardy, water-wise and beautiful, attract native birds and are all readily available from local native plant nurseries. Synergy Parkland also has spacious venues for family gatherings, BBQ facilities and children’s playgrounds.

Weeds and Invasive Species
22. Weeds and Invasive Species 

When walking in the bush, many people think that every pretty flower they see is a true native wildflower. Unfortunately, this is far from correct and many of the 'pretty flowers' that can now be seen in bushland areas are Weeds and Introduced Species, many of which have escaped from domestic gardens. This album has been created to develop awareness of the spread of these weeds and introduced species, which in many cases, are displacing our own unique and often endangered Western Australian Wildflowers. For a start we must all take responsibility to protect our unique flora and it is the responsibility of every home gardener to never dump garden waste on vacant land or bushland.

Titles and descriptions have been added where possible and eventually I hope to identify and add more information to other images.
