King’s Park, Perth’s must-see destination

If you can handle the vertical climb up Mount Street (Iggy managed this while pushing Andrew in his stroller) the reward is phenomenal. King's Park is a Perth must-see. The aerial walkway takes you through the tree tops, with views out over the water and into the bush below.

At the entry to the walkway is an ancient baobob tree.

An ankle biter noticed two little piles of writhing bugs closer to her eye level than ours. She looked up, saying brightly "They are entwined." Elegantly apt vocabulary. Well done to the parents and/or teachers who introduced her to the wonderful world of books.

En route, I discovered bronze leaf sculptures laid into rock at ground level. Intriguing.

    Wow! Check out the history of Gija Jumulu! – The story of the Giant Boab ‘Gija Jumulu’ captured world-wide media coverage during July 2008 as it journeyed over 3200 kilometres, from Warmun in WA’s Kimberley region, to Kings Park in Perth.

  2. I knew there was a story attached to the Baobob. Thank you for the research, Iggy.
