Wildflowers to bloom in Western Australia

Article content

11 April 2013 by Luke McCormick

Western Australia is home to more than 12,000 species of wildflowers, more than the rest of Australia combined, which are in bloom for around six months of the year.

Sweeping across 2.5 million square kilometres, WA's wildflowers rank as one of the State's most fascinating and precious natural treasures, each year attracting thousands of visitors to study the rare varieties. Around 60 per cent of WA's wildflowers are found nowhere else in the world.

WA's wildflower season starts in June in the north and then sweeps south, finishing by November, meaning visitors can enjoy different species at various times and destinations.

In the West, Australia's most familiar wildflowers take a dazzling twist from the norm. Pink boronias, red and green kangaroo paw, magenta paperbark blossom and orange-flowering banksias are top of the list for wildflower spotters.

There's no better way to discover this blaze of brilliant colours and lush scents than on a self-drive holiday, discovering one of the eleven wildflower trails on offer. Visitors can pick up a copy of Tourism WA's 2013 Wildflower Holiday Guide at a WA Visitor Centre or download the guide here.
