When you’ve had enough of looking at wildflowers in Kings Park, head for the Lotterywest Federation Walkway (generally called the treetop walk) to look down on the trees, and out across Perth and the Swan River.
Sturt’s Desert Pea with its striking red and black flowers in the botanical garden section of Kings Park in Perth.
Some great Kangaroo Paws flowering in the botanical gardens in Kings Park at present.
We visited the botanical gardens at Kings Park recently, mainly to see the West Australian native wildflowers, but were also impressed by the view across the Old Swan Brewery, Swan River and Narrows Bridge – with Perth city centre on the skyline.
We were walking through the bushland of Kings Park in Perth recently and noticed this West Australian Christmas Tree (Nuytsia floribunda) that was just coming into flower. These striking trees are native to the southwest of the state.
We also went for a walk through the bushland of Perth’s Kings Park recently and saw plenty of wildflowers growing in their natural habitat. That’s a Sand-dune Fringed Lily above, and Yellow Starflower below.
There is also quite a lot of this amusingly named Yellow Autumn Lily (it is still spring here).
This one with the dry, papery petals is Waitzia suaveolans (no common name that we know of).
A few days back we went for a walk through the botanical garden section of Kings Park. Although it is almost the end of spring, there were still plenty of West Australian native wildflowers in bloom.
We especially liked the Cooloomia Verticordia (above) and this brightly coloured Kalbarri Beaufortia.
And this delicate Blue Lace Flower as well.
