Day 13 – Joseph Banks
One of the people on Captain Cook’s ship coming to Australia was Joseph Banks. He was the biologist and part of his job was drawing the new plants and animals that they found in Australia. He has lots of Australian plants named after him. One of them is the well known Banksia plant.
We went to the Joseph Banks Native Plants Reserve to do some of the walks there and see lots of Australian Plants. We did some drawings like Joseph Banks of some of the plants we found. It was a really beautiful garden and I turned my drawings into his name. It was heaps of fun!
