The narrow tall vertical metal printed sign at a path junction in Rawson Park has reproductions of local flowers, probably of the Rawson Park area, that were painted in 1788. George Raper (1769-1797) came out on the First Fleet. The photo-realistic water colour paintings of four flowers are:

- Apple Berry (Billordiera scandes)
- Kangaroo Apple (Solanum aviculae)
- Scurvy Weed (Comelina cyanea)
- Lambertia formosa
