This play is very appropriate for the Wild Flower Festival as photographer  Helen Ogden and her friend Artist Ida Richardson have just published their very popular book

Flowers of Western Australia

This book was a very early book about what became one of the most popular discoveries of W.A. Its Wildflowers.

Helen Ogden was the sister-in-law of Elsie Finlayson Ogden the owner of Enderslea Farm. She had come to Western Australia as the 2nd headmistress of Presbyterian Ladies College. When she married Wilfred Ogden she had to resign her position and she bought Enderslea Farm and developed it as an orchard. With the large stone Barn built by Ticket-of-leave men

Red Flowering Gums

is given an evocative sense of place to their stories.. the ticket to the performance is $35. this includes tea and coffee with a biscuit or two.  We hope that you will visit Bindoon either before or after the play to enjoy all that is done to display its wildflowers.
