Winter Wattles in Bloom at Highfields Bushland Reserve

The beautiful yellow glow of the native flowering acacias in winter have brightened up the dull brown appearance of winter in the Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve at Highfields.  The border of the Polzin Road side of the reserve in particular is a glow with this native beauty.  Winter wattle at it's best!
