When travelling through wheatbelt country south east of Geraldton in springtime, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy magnificent wildflowers. Much of this floral splendour can be seen from the car and occasional roadside stops. Much better still is to get out on foot and really get amongst it.

One of the best towns to see wildflowers from is Mullewa. Almost right in town is the Mullewa Bushland Trail. Starting from the Mullewa Scenic Lookout, the winding loop takes the visitor along an, at times rocky, but not too steep hike. Surprisingly, there are even small caves in rocky outcrops. There are good views of the surrounding farnland and town. Interperative signage in places tells of the indigenous culture of the area. When winter rains are good, the spring wildflowers are absolutely sensational. Besides carpets of everlastings, there are numerous other species.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
