Howson Hill emerges from a tranquil waterway north of the River Walk and is capped with existing rare and endangered Mallee Eucalypts and a rarely grown plant, Nuytsia floribunda (Western Australian Christmas Tree). A walk along the ridge line provides access to these unique trees and a rich understorey of grasses and ground covers. The loosely-defined path culminates in a viewing platform affording sweeping views across the Australian Garden and along the Melaleuca Spits. A pathway providing continuous waterside access links the two sections of the Display Gardens in the ‘valleys’ adjacent to Howson Hill.
