Subiaco – Mueller Park

As one of Perth’s oldest suburbs, Subiaco has lots of historical connections, including a park named after an eminent 19th century botanist. Ferdinand von Mueller came to Australia from Germany in 1847. He held the position of government botanist in the state of Victoria and travelled widely collecting botanical specimens.
He was a prolific writer, publishing many scientific papers and important books such as “Eucalyptographia: A Descriptive Atlas of the Eucalypts of Australia and the Adjoining Islands”.
Mueller Park has some large gum trees (eucalypts) and also avenues of Norfolk Island pines and very old Peppermint trees.
