About FloraCultures

FloraCultures is a not-for-profit online project showcasing the botanical heritage of Western Australia through art, literature, music, historical commentaries and oral histories. Featuring 30 indigenous plants of the Kings Park and Botanic Garden bushland in Perth, FloraCultures aims to promote the importance of Western Australian flora to the state's cultural heritage. Made possible through funding generously provided by Edith Cowan University, the website is due to be launched in 2016 and will include an inspiring range of visual, written, and spoken materials.
