Investigate biodiversity, classification and plant adaptations

Discover the features and unique adaptations of some of Western Australia's most interesting flora.

Learn fascinating ways plants have adapted to survive in their environment, including plants with built-in sunblock and smelly oils, carnivorous plants with sticky leaves, as well as techniques for natural bushfire survival.

'An amazing variety of unusual plants that the kids have never looked closely at. They loved it. I loved watching their engagement. It supported our class study.' - Year 5 Teacher
