Outback Wildflower Trails
Australia’s Golden Outback wildflower trails lead you through some of the State’s most breathtaking displays of Western Australian wildflowers. Among the 12,000-plus wildflower species scattered across the outback, you’ll find carpets of pink, yellow and white everlastings stretching as far as the eye can see, as well as the unusual wreath leschenaultia.
The season commences in the north of the region in August and finishes in the south during December. But before you begin one of the many outback wildflower trails, call the local visitor centre for information about the variety and location of wildflowers in bloom. Although Western Australian wildflowers can often be seen from the roadside, many interesting species can be found a short distance off the road and the local visitor centres will be happy to point you in the right direction.
A wide choice of accommodation, from hotels, caravan parks and camping sites to bed and breakfasts, farm stays and station stays provide a warm welcome, local knowledge and a good base from which to explore the region’s wildflower displays.
