3/4J are off to Scenic World in a few weeks!

Along with riding the Scenic Railway and the

Scenic Cableway, we will be walking along

the Scenic Walkway seeing lots of Australia’s

native flora and fauna. Let’s familiarise

ourselves with some native plants before we leave!


Golden Wattle is Australia’s national flower. The

Golden Wattle blooms in spring, – beginning

September – in Australia, with large fluffy, yellow,

sweet smelling flower heads. Each Golden Wattle

flower head is a bunch of many tiny flowers. We

will definitely see some as we enter the Blue

Mountains as many wattle trees line the road.

The Golden Wattle features prominently on the

Australian coat of arms. Australia celebrates

Wattle Day on September 1.

Australian Native flowers have always been a popular subject

for artworks. Check some out here.



We are learning to create wattle paintings with a hint of 3D.



* I can use watercolours and paint correctly, with pom poms!

* I can scrunch crepe paper and glue it correctly

* I can discuss and describe wattle and Australian native artworks

Pom pom painted wattle flowers

This Aussie mum had two great wattle artworks, let’s combine

them into one with pom poms, crepe paper, glitter glue and



What other Australian native plants do you know? What

other 3D artworks can we make?
