Abstract From book review: Plants of the Kimberley Region of Western Australia (Revised Edition) Written by John Petheram and B.

Kok; Photography by E. Bartlett-Torr Plants of the Kimberley. The majority of the Kimberley’s flora is part of open savannah woodland that encircles Kimberley’s sandstone gorges and beautifully surrounds the coast. The most abundant trees in Kimberley include the iconic Boabs and low Corymbia (also known as Bloodwood) trees.

Here, there are birds, mammals, reptiles and fish as well as rainforests, ancient boab trees and palms that have had to adapt in order to survive life in The Kimberley.

Many of the plants here are specifically adapted to life in the ranges. The rock fig has. Things To See In The Kimberley is the ultimate Kimberley travel guide, written by Kununurra-local and tour guide, Scotty Connell. It is the culmination of a life spent exploring Australia’s wild and remote north west.

Scotty grew up in the Kimberley and has made it his mission to thoroughly explore the region via air, land and sea. Kimberley rose is an alternative name for this species as it grows only in the Kimberley.

Avery similar looking genus, the red fowered kurrajong is also found in the Northern Territory. Aboriginal uses: The seeds are eaten raw or roasted on coals. The tiny hairs on the seeds are highly irritant and need to be burned off before processing.

Images of Kimberley flora including the boab tree (Adansonia gregorii). The Kimberley rangelands (Figure 1) are characterised by grasslands, which are predominantly perennial tussock (bunch) and hummock grasses, with or without some tree cover.

The Kimberley has a tropical monsoonal climate with a wet summer (November to April) and a dry winter (May to October). The region’s history could easily fill a book and is utterly fascinating. A snapshot of the Kimberley’s history will be given in this article. It is believed that the first humans that came to the Kimberley arrived from the Asian side of the Torres Strait.5/5(66).

Western Australia is renowned for its unique plants, algae and fungi, from the forests of our south-west to the vast meadows of seagrass offshore, and the boab trees of the Kimberley.

The south-west of Western Australia is one of the world's 34 biodiversity ‘hotspots’, with some of the richest and most unique reservoirs of plant and animal.

The rocks of the Kimberley region contain a geological record that spans the last million years of the EarthⳠhistory. The oldest rocks in the Kimberley form the Lennard Hills in the west Kimberley and the Bow River Hills and the Halls Creek ridges in the east Kimberley. These comprise metamorphosed sediments,volcanics and granites.

This book is small enough to be carried in a backback and would be very useful to hikers, tourists, tour operators, residents of the Kimberley region and anyone interested in bush tucker or to identify flora of the region.
