Wilds of Westville – taking back the suburbs

A friend of mine lives in central Westville, fairly close to the freeway and the Pavillion but has the good fortune of a house that is built near a river valley, which means that the land has not been developed. We went exploring downstream and found a clearing that is a world away from the Pav (see pics). We couldn’t hear any cars or see any buildings. The river is a thin stream at the moment but apparently rages after heavy rains. The river bed is covered in what I assume must be indigenous lilies. They are very fragrant (smell amazing), are white with a touch of pale yellow while in bloom and have just flowered – I caught the last completely white flowers. Does anyone know what these are? What is their proper name?  And p.s,  isn’t this is a great little spot in the middle of suburbia? It must support a load of animals. Take back the burbs!
