THE greatest wildflower show on earth is coming to the Kings Park Festival this September.

This year marks the 55th Kings Park Festival and Environment Minister Stephen Dawson said he is delighted to see it getting underway as it is a wonderful celebration of Western Australia’s extraordinary wildflowers and community.

The festival highlights the uniqueness of WA landscapes with free guided walks and talks, outdoor exhibitions and beautiful gardens on show.

Visitors will also be able to participate in the newly introduced outdoor wellness events such as meditation, yoga and tai chi.

On Sundays this September the Adorable Florable wildflower characters will be around for a Sunday stroll, as well as a photography exhibition by the WA nature photographer David Bettini.

There will be musicians performing each weekend on the Aspects Lawn as well as workshops about photography, painting and learning about the wildlife.

“This month in Kings Park, we will see more than 100 free guided walks and talks to celebrate the wildflower season – 1500 WA primary school students celebrating environmental sustainability,” Mr Dawson said.
