See Western Australian wildflowers in bloom
There are more than 12,000 species of wildflowers in WA, making it the world’s largest collection of wildflowers. 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
Certain destinations and months of the year are renowned for specific species. For example, the Golden Outback is the place to picnic on a blanket of white, pink and yellow everlastings. Seek out the unique Wreath Flower on the Coral Coast. Go hunting for delicate orchids in the South West.
You can view the very best of all Western Australian Wildflowers every September, 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.
