See Western Australian wildflowers in bloom
There are more than 12,000 species of wildflowers in WA, making it the world’s largest collection. It’s a staggering sight to behold, especially when you consider 60% of Western Australian wildflowers are found nowhere else on Earth. What’s more, you can enjoy their glorious carpets of colour and curious blooms for six months of the year, as the season begins in June in the north, and sweeps down the State to finish with a flurry on the south coast in November.

Take your pick of the bunch
Enjoy a picnic on a blanket of white, pink and yellow everlastings or seek out the unique wreath leschenaultia in the Coral Coast or Golden Outback. Or go hunting for delicate orchids in the South West.
You can also view the very best of all Western Australian wildflowers every September in Perth, when Kings Park Botanical Garden bursts into bloom. Or head for one of Perth’s many nature reserves and national parks to spot local native species, from brightly coloured banksias to vivid red and green kangaroo paws.
If diversity is is what you're after, head to the North West where you can see vibrant floral shades contrast with the dusty red earth and golden Spinifex grass.
