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.
