Trails: Wildflower

Western Australian wildflowers are renowned as being one of the most spectacular wildflower displays in the world. The rugged landscape comes alive with a blaze of brilliant colours and lush scents from June to November.

For six picturesque months, a whopping 12,000 plant species carpet the state with their vivid beauty - and endless varieties are still being discovered! And over 60% of these species are found nowhere else in the world.

In Western Australia, 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.

Explore the Western Australian wildflower extravaganza at your leisure, or enjoy Mother Nature's finest show on an organised tour.
