Lesueur national park is around 200km north of Perth in Western Australia and is internationally known as a biodiversity hot spot. Within the park there are over 900 species of plants, that’s around 10 percent of all plant species within W.A. in the one national park. Now I’d read all about this and one of my wildflower books recommended it as a “must see” place in spring time, so I headed up there arriving just after dawn.
If you missed part one of Wireless Hill or Kings Park, please use these links to view them first. When you’re on a good thing it often takes more than one trip to see everything and get all the photos you want and I went back to kings park and wireless hill to explore more and take some more pictures. I managed to find 3 different spider orchids and about 8 orchids all up at wireless hill but I’m not going to try and identify them all, my book has about 150 different spider orchids alone and many look very similar.
Kings park in spring time is something special. For those who don’t know, Kings park is a 1000 acre park on the western edge of Perths CBD, and one of the largest inner city parks in the world. Much of the park is natural bush land though there are large areas of gardens showcasing Western Australia’s diverse range of flora.
I went into Albany today to get my car window fixed after my Nullaki walk the other day. I decided to spend a few hours in town with the macro lens checking out some of the plant life, these photos are the result.
