Wildflower time in Western Australia
The Western Australian landscape comes alive with a myriad of magnificent colours and wonderful scents fill the air from June to November – it’s the wildflower season.
For six colourful months, no less than 12,000 different plant species carpet the state -- and more than 60 per cent of these species are found nowhere else in the world.
Here’s a top tip: head north to the Pilbara region in June or July, where vibrant clusters and amazing blankets of flowers bloom after the early rains. And in August the 186,000-hectare Kalbarri National Park comes alive with blood-red blossoms.
South of the state in early September, areas such as Esperance and the Margaret River wine region spring to life with rare and exquisite flora.
In Perth, you’ll be dazzled by the stunning selection of wildflowers at Kings Park in Western Australia’s springtime. The park's 400-hectare botanic garden boasts more than 1,700 native species and hosts an annual wildflower festival in September.
