About the Trail

Situated in the Darling Ranges, John Forrest is the oldest National Park in Western Australia and passes through varied vegetation types, including heathlands, open wandoo woodlands and mixed jarrah-marri-wandoo forest.

The Wildflower Walk Trail is lined with a variety of wildflowers both on the gradual incline and decline back to the car park. Be sure to set aside extra time as you will find yourself taking plenty of breaks to stop and enjoy the colours.

Don't miss the brief diversion near the end of the trail to Hovea Falls, in winter or spring. It's a a great way to end your walk.
