Red-and-Green Kangaroo Paw (WA)
Towards the end of August, the kangaroo paws start flowering and it's a delight to spot them so close to home. This is probably the easiest emblem for me to find and nature journal!
By September, when we knew the waratah should start flowering, the weather forecast was perfect to go for a bushwalk. We were headed to the Central Coast region of NSW, just north of Sydney.
State and Territory Emblem Series
In this series I plan to go out and find the state and territory emblems of Australia and spend some time nature journaling them.
