Scaled national park 48.retouched
Akasha, a park ranger from the Noongar nation, has been working for the Department of Parks and Wildlife for the last decade. During a routine inspection, Akasha stumbles upon a secret garden. Who created it? Who does it belong to? Upon closer look, this garden holds more than just a few little secrets; in fact, Akasha has struck cultural gold.

Enter Casey. A wannabe spiritualist... everything that Akasha is not. The two forge an unlikely friendship, and one day they learn that this land is in jeopardy, up for grabs by the Department of Housing and Infrastructure.

The latest work from Andrea Fernandez, A National Park is a modern tale of love between an unlikely duo. As they find themselves in the middle of the biggest protest of their life, they wonder: is there a price tag on culture?
