“Kimberley Eucalypts” by Phil Docherty, Book Launch, Broome (WA)
March 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join author Phil Docherty and illustrator Tom Montgomery in conversation at the launch of Kimberley Eucalypts – A Guide. Australia is rich in eucalypts, and the Kimberley hosts at least 66 species. Eucalypts of one species or another dominate the Kimberley landscape, from the Pindan shrublands of the west to the open, hilly savanna of the east.
This book fills a gap in botanical works about the Kimberley. It provides non-specialists with a straightforward guide to Kimberley eucalypts, illustrated with photographs and drawings to help with identification. Users will appreciate the great variety of Corymbia and Eucalyptus species found in the Kimberley and will be well-equipped to become familiar with some of them.
Phil Docherty is a local plant enthusiast from country Western Australia, who attributes his love of native plants to the
influence of his mother, Josephine.
Kimberley Eucalypts – A Guide will be available to purchase during the event. It is also available from the EK shop.
This event is supported by the Shire of Broome, the Society for Kimberley Indigenous Plants and Animals (SKIPA) and Environs Kimberley.
