Here, you can picnic on a blanket of pink, yellow and white everlastings stretching as far as the eye can see, and marvel at over 12,000 wildflower species, including the striking wreath leschenaultia and Royal Hakea.
Wildflowers bloom right around Western Australia’s Outback from mid/late July to late October and for a strictly limited season you can view the world’s largest collection of wildflowers now about to bloom in Australia’s Golden Outback.
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 many species of beautiful orchids, 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 with its bizarre looking royal hakea and the national parks around Esperance in full bloom with coastal species.
Find out where the wildflowers in Australia's Golden Outback are currently blooming and which species you're likely to spot.
A journey out to see the beautiful array of colours as well as the delicate and unusual features of many of the species, makes a wonderful day trip or extended holiday. The best way to experience this amazing natural spectacle is to follow one of the region's wildflowers trails.
