This year the star attraction is "Eva Bloom" - the gigantic pink silk flower - in front of the Visitor Information Centre. The flower is 6mt wide and 3mt high!
Isn't it just so cute?
There are loads of activities for children throughout the month, and on the day of my visit I was amazed to see that probably just about every Primary school in Perth, was visiting the Park!
It was the Kulunga Katitjin Festival day- a day to promote and explore the world of local Aboriginal culture, science and sustainability - and the Nyoongar people were teaching the kids to make bush tucker, traditional dancing, storytelling and boomerang throwing.
|Here they are dancing with Aboriginal folk|
|Lots of tents with activities for the kids - can you spot the Women's memorial statue I showed you on an earlier post?|
|Learning about worms to use on the compost to enrich the soil|
This year, for the first time there will be talks in some foreign languages - "Secrets of the Botanic Garden Walk" - and the Portuguese community will have an opportunity for their guided visit on Tuesday 23rd.
|Talks in various languages|

The Floral clock has been revamped with wildflowers surrounding it. Very pretty!
On the stage a small brass band brought some jazz sounds to the festival, but every Sunday there are free outdoor concerts from 10,30am to 4pm.

Throught the month there are also various talks about trees, grass, flowers and soil microbes, garden workshops...and on the last weekend there will be a native plant sale (27 to 29/9 from 10am to 4pm).
And here are the all important wildflowers!

Hope you enjoyed the visit to Kings Park and the wonderful wildflower show.
