"Flame Grevillea", Wildflowers of Lake Grace

A postcard from our friend Rachel who is touring Australia at the moment.

 

Lake Grace is about 300km south-east Perth. It's named after Grace Bussell who rescued many people from the wreck of the ship, Georgette near the mouth of the Margaret River in 1876.

 

Lake Grace is located near many natural shallow salt lakes that exhibit bright colours due to the chemical composition of the salts.

 

The Nyoongar people are the traditional aboriginal owners of the area which is hoime to "Wave Rock".

 

Rachel says it's hot, with a million flies.

 

Thanks for the postcard, Rach!
