2019 Wildflower season
Winter rains came very late in the season, but the 'carpets' of everlastings are now starting to appear around the Gascoyne and Murchison. From mid-August the flowers then start to bloom further south right across the Wheatbelt, with its beautiful orchids, everlastings and countless of other species. Traditionally from mid-August wildflowers start blooming around the Goldfields region, and from September through October it’s peak season for the southern outback coast with the Fitzgerald River National Park and its bizarre looking royal hakea and the national parks around Esperance in full bloom with coastal varieties.
Australia’s Golden Outback wildflower trails lead you through some of the State’s most breathtaking displays of Western Australian wildflowers.
This spring come and view the world’s largest collection of wildflowers throughout Australia’s Golden Outback. Check out our wildflower hotspot page here.
Among the 12,000-plus wildflower species scattered across the Golden 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 late July and finishes in the south in late October/early November. 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.
