Spectacular wildflower season expected

Local experts are predicting we’re in for a fantastic wildflower season in Western Australia, thanks to abundant autumn and early winter rains.

There’s been extensive annual growth on the ground and some areas, for example the Mid-West, Gascoyne and Wheatbelt, are expecting the season to be the best we’ve seen for several years.

The first orchids are already out and some wattles are starting to flower in the wheatbelt.

The WA Visitor Centre’s WA Wildflower tracker App, supported by Tourism and populated with current sightings, will be launched soon, in time for the season.

Western Australia is home to an exceptional array of over 12,000 species of wildflowers – almost two-thirds are unique to our State Western Australia.

Carpeting the landscape, they come into bloom in the northern parts of the State in June with the season extending into the southern part of the State into Spring and early summer.

Tours and accommodation are in demand and booking well ahead is recommended.
