You could jump off the plane or drive across the border into Western Australia & see wildflowers almost immediately. Many people think there is a wildflower season for Western Australia, but there is actually many plants flowering all year round. Western Australia is truly Wildflower Country!
Why are the wildflowers so spectacular in Western Australia?
Well, there's more than 12,000 species, with 60 percent of the flowering species found nowhere else on the planet. We have the most unique and diverse display of wildflowers here is Western Australia. It is really quite sensational!
The best time to see an abundance of wildflowers - like fields of everlasting daisies - in Western Australia is a 6-month window beginning in June, in the Pilbara region.
In August-September, places like Coalseam Conservation Park, Mullewa, Mingenew are lit up by fields of daisies. Checkout the Wildflower Country website for ideas on where to go.
My hot tip is find the spot to see the amazing Wreath Leschenaultia (Lechenaultia macrantha), in Perenjori.
And also make a stop at Lesueur National Park in the Jurien Bay area for a walk, amazing views and abundant flora & wildlife. Why? Well, Lesueur is home to 900 plant species including 10% of Western Australia’s known plants - acacias, hibbertias, melaleucas, many species of orchids. Plus 122 species of native bird and 52 reptile species (park entry fees apply).
