It's time to see West Australian wildflowers at their best

From now until late September, Western Australia's wildflowers are at their best.

And the best part? You don't need a tour guide - we'll show you the way. Enjoy the freedom to stop and savor nature's wonders, making memories that will last a lifetime. 

You just need to pick the playlist - or use ours


Yanchep Rose.jpg

Yanchep National Park

During September, the Park comes to life with the endemic Yanchep Rose, orchids, kangaroo paw and stunning wattles. Their fenced wildflower gardens are one of the fastest ways to experience the area's biodiversity.  


Nilgen Reserve 

Located in the heart of kwongan country, Nilgen Reserve is awash with flowering shrubs like banksia, hakea and bottlebrush. The signposted wildflower walk, combined with Dark Stry's immersive features, shows you what's flowering all year round. 


The Pinnacles 

The Pinnacles Desert comes alive during wildflower season with vibrant displays of flowering shrubs including wattle, eucalyptus and hakea. The lookouts are the perfect place to spot snail, fairy and spider orchids. 



Cervantes is the perfect to refuel - whether you're looking for a lazy lobster lunch looking out over the Indian Ocean Drive - a generous all day pub lunch or an overnight stay to enjoy the Pinnacles at sunset or night. 



Stretch your legs, or picnic amongst the everlasting carpet. If you are on the hunt for the rare black kangaroo paw, choose between the Ian Wilson Nature Trail in the Badgingarra National Park (6.6km) or the easier Vern Westbrook Walk in Phoebe's Reserve, a short diversion from the Brand Highway. 


Brand Highway & Gingin 

The return trip along the Brand Highway is the perfect time for your canola selfie (but don't cross any fences or enter fields!). The township of Gingin is famous for its kangaroo paws amongst the grave stones - a stark reminder that nature always finds a way. And there's always the Gingin Gin!
