Whispers

Part of the Kings Park War Memorial is a 180° semi circle that includes inscriptions of many of the theatres of wars that Australian soldiers fought in.

One of the other aspects of the wall is its wonderful ability to transfer sound.  Due to the delightful laws of physics, a person can sit at each end and simply by speaking under their breath easily relay messages to the other person without anyone outside hearing.  Unless, of course, they choose to sit in the middle of you!

Mosaic in Tuart Park

One of the beautiful things about Kings Park is the wide open spaces nestled in the 400+ hectares of land.  On the fringes of many of the parks they have some excellent places to sit and wile away an afternoon.  There’s also usually some nice artwork to boot.

Boab overlooking South Perth

A couple of smaller boabs sit high on on the Mount Eliza escarpment looking south towards South Perth and Melville Water.  They are surrounding the larger boab transfered to Kings Park late last year.
