Gija Jumulu

Kings Park in Western Australia was gifted a 750 year old Boab tree from the Gija Aboriginals of Australia last week. The Jumulu (meaning ‘Boab’) was transported from the Kimberley region in an overt operation on the back of a large open truck. Settled in its new home at Two Rivers lookout in Kings Park, the tree stands at approximately 14 m in height and just over 2 m in width. Since its arrival, visitors have flocked to view the tree as it protrudes from its enclosure, surrounded by Eucalypts.
