Spring Festival at Kings Park II

Following from my first post about the Kings Park Spring Festival that started on the 1st of September, here are some more photos taken on my first visit to this year's festival.

Kings Park has been voted the 6th best park in the world according to Trip Advisor with 
5,8 million visitors a year,  650,000 of these visiting during the Spring Festival in September. Amazing isn't it?







 This lovely kookaburra was on top of a tree while a honeyeater taunted it and he just turned one way or another but stayed in the same branch. Very strange, I thought being twice the size would mean he would give the honeyeater a hard time and not the other way around.

Lots of wildflowers

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful wild blooms, some of these unique to Western Australia.
Hopefully I'll get some time to visit again before the end of the month for more Spring photos.

  6. What a lovely collection of photos Sami! They give a great overview of all the beauty to enjoy there. I love the mural you posted on Monday too! How do you go about finding them all - or do you just happen upon them?

  7. I'm so jealous of your spring... here, as you know, we are in the Autumn but it feels more like a winter because it got cold really fast! Enjoy the sunny days ahead and the colourful flowers.
