All photos taken Friday 8 September, 2017, in the bushland of Kings Park…an easy walk (or free bus into the manicured part of Kings Park, then a short walk into its bushland) from Perth’s CBD.One Comment
Perth’s King’s Park – a short walk or free bus trip from the CBD – is bigger than New York’s Central Park.
It is also vastly richer in local flora.
Nearer to the Indian Ocean and just 8 kilometres from Perth’s GPO, the even bigger Bold Park has more than 300 local plant species…and (alas!) more than 200 introduced ones.
All photos taken today, Monday September 4, 2017 in Bold Park. Your further zooming/enlarging may prove rewarding.One Comment
