Photo Competition - Beauty and Biodiversity in the Backyard

In our community we’re lucky enough to enjoy the wonderful Djarlgarro Beeliar - the Canning River - that flows through our City, bringing with it all the joys of our indigenous flora and fauna – flowers, frogs, fish and other flying and furry creatures.

But how often do we stop to see the beauty in our own backyard? We’re inviting you to share the beauty, bounty and biodiversity in your own backyard, or from your balcony, through a City-wide photography competition. Grab your phone or camera and get snap happy to share the joy!​
