Artist's Description

The Federation Walkway in Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia, was built to celebrate the centenary of Australian Federation, and was opened in 2003. The Federation Walkway reaches a maximum height of 16m at the apex of the uniquely designed 52m glass and steel arched bridge which appears suspended amidst the canopy of tall eucalypts, including Karri, Marri, Tingle and Jarrah trees.

Kings Park is a large area of urban parkland and bushland comprising approximately 408 hectares on the edge of the Mt Eliza escarpment and overlooking the Swan River and the central business district of the City of Perth. It is internationally rare as a large park with a substantial portion of natural bushland located in the centre of a city and is listed on the WA State Heritage Register, but this doesn’t preclude quality and innovative new design.

Camera: Canon Powershot SX30 IS with 35X zoom lens, focal length 4.3 – 150.5mm (24mm – 180mm 35mm film equivalent).
