Touristing in my town

It’s school holidays here at the moment and after lunch one-day last week in Claremont at Miss Chow’s (yummy soups and dumplings), we decided that we weren’t quite ready to head home and wanted to enjoy the rare bit of spring sunshine so headed into Kings Park to check out the wildflowers.

Tourists from all over the country and overseas are flocking to see this spectacle. The display this year with all the late winter/early spring rains we have had in Perth is absolutely incredible.

We could be in the bush somewhere…..but here we are …….just five minutes from home.

So get out there I say..check out what’s in your neighbourhood
