Waterfalls, bridges and birds...



Before I went off on a small break last week I showed a few tempters from John Oldham Park named after WA landscape architect John Oldham.  Nestled close to the city in a busy spot between Mounts Bay Road and the Kwinana Freeway interchange it is a most unexpected green and lush haven with abundant bird life. You might think in this spot it would be hard to reach, but not so.. there are bike paths accessible from many areas including the city and a car park off Mounts Bay Rd.. tres clever planning oui! I hope that you're having a good week, take care and stay safe..

  7. Another Perth treasure. "Lush" is certainly the right word and your camera has captured that lushness well. I'd like to ride bike on that path!

  17. What a place. Water is always good. Water falling is even better. The tree in the foreground of the first photo I guess is a type of a fern. What an unusual trunk with, I presume, marks where older fronds have fallen off as it has grown.

  27. Great to have somewhere like this so close to the city, though by the look of your photos it seems to be a fairly well-kept secret.
