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.
Walked around Herdsman Lake yesterday. It was a typical Perth summer’s day – endless blue sky and not a cloud in sight.
We went for a walk around the Zamia Trail at Perth’s Bold Park earlier this week.
There are plenty of spring wildflowers in bloom at present, including Prickly Moses (top), Geraldton Wax (above) and Grevillea crithmifolia. Some are past their best, but others are just coming into flower.
The Pyrmont walk that we described yesterday starts near the Pyrmont Swing Bridge at Darling Harbour in Sydney. The bridge dates from 1902 and had a central section that swings open to let large boats through.
Along the walk we saw the Anzac Bridge, which was built in 1995. Beneath the Anzac Bridge you can see the Glebe Island Bridge (below), which is another swing bridge. It was opened in 1903, and is now disused.
