The wildflowers of Western Australia are one of the most spectacular flower displays in the world. Between July and October, many parts of the state become blankets of colour with everything from tiny crimson myrtles, dainty smokebush, fiery mountain bells and over 150 varieties of orchids coming into bloom.
From June to December this biodiversity is on vivid display, with the flowering of thousands of species of wildflowers in Western Australia. Typically, the wildflower season in Western Australia begins in the state’s north including the Pilbara and outback regions by June and July. Wildflowers then continue to bloom further south, including in the Wheatbelt and Perth region from August and September and slightly later in the southern regions.
On our journey south past Katanning and the Stirling Ranges and Porongurup National Parks we will be travelling through Orchid country where there are a huge array of colourful and exotic species.
Wildflowers are seasonal and the number and variety of blooming wildflowers vary from year to year and heavily depends on the rainfall and other climatic factors. For this reason, there is a big variation in blooming times and flower diversity from year to year.
One of the joys of the wildflower season in Western Australian is that you come across the colourful floral displays almost everywhere you go. Roadside kerbs, bush trails, paddocks and coastal dunes come alive with colour and you will catch glimpses of these swathes of colour as we travel by rail and coach through our journey in WA.
On this WA rail and road travel package you get to explore Perth, Katanning, Albany, Pemberton and Busselton from the 5th to the 15th September.
