Kings Park, Botanic Garden and Zig Zag Drive Day 8
Monday, April 08, 2013
We started off our tour at the War Memorial from which there were wonderful views of Perth and the Swan River. We then head across the park to the Law Walk, which is a 1 1/2 mile bushland trail that showcases great views and a large array of wildflowers. From there we then got on the Federation Walkway, which extends through the Botanic Garden with both ground paths and a glass and steel bridge suspended in a canopy of eucalyptus trees. I found it easier to look out over the views rather than down at them since I have a fear of heights.
Next we stop off for a cold drink and some souvenir and art shopping at the Aspects of Kings Park. Now refreshed, we head off for the Bushland Nature Trail where wildflowers come in every size, shape and color. God had to have worked overtime to have come up with so many different kinds of beautiful flowers. The red and green kangaroo paws were definitely different than any flower that I have ever seen. It was impossible to pick a favorite since they were all unique and beautiful. Hopefully some of the pictures I took will turn out well enough to blow up and frame.
To finish off the day we headed down Zig Zag Drive where you can see some beautiful views of Perth and Gooseberry Hill National Park, if you aren't too carsick to care. It is then on to Kalamunda from where we will start our trek.
