It was an absolute honour to represent WA and showcase a native sensorial experience for 1250 international business delegates from 30 countries here for the Australian Tourism Exchange #ATE19, in Perth on Wednesday the 10th of April 2019. Presented by Tourism WA, The #WAnderlust event celebrates the natural sights, smells and sounds unique to our beautiful state of Western Australia.
What could be a more iconic backdrop to host our First Australian Native MYO Perfumery Bar than amongst the wildflower surrounds of Kings Park clear blue skies of the city of Perth?
A hidden treasure. Nestled amongst a sloping green hill deep inside Forrest Drive, of Kings Park is Roe Gardens. Amongst the local birds feeding in the wildflower surrounds shaded with towering Mottlecah (Eucalyptus macrocarpa) clad in hard silver leaves, our Australian Native Perfumery was complimented with a dramatic entry alongside Grevillea and the Hakea Garden’s north-western flora.
Our Australian Native Perfumery bar was sitting within the historic “Drummond's Seat”, a striking, semi-circular granite bench named after James Drummond, Western Australia's first Government Botanist.
The sweeping views of Place of Reflection and the Narrows Bridge set the scene for a night for a wildflower sensory experience, as those pink skies start to set in, and guests arrive.
