It is no wonder with up to 12,000 species found in a vast area of the state, from the Pilbara region in the north to the Southern Coastal region. The wildflower season spans from July in the north to November in the south. Each region has species and varieties that are endemic to that area and are not found anywhere else in the state or the world. The wildflowers rely on the rains and sunshine and so each year the wildflower season varies which adds to the magic of Natures exquisite display of dazzling wildflowers

In the Pilbara and Mid West region you will see the famous display of kilometre after kilometre sheets of yellow or pink or white everlasting daisies interwoven with flowering shrubs and bushes. Creating a colourful contrast is the Outback’s magnificent terrain.

The Central and Wheatbelt region you will be amazed at the variety of bushes and shrubs in vibrant clusters that cover the landscape in a riot of colour. Intermingled with exquisite orchids.

The Southern part of the state is one of the world’s most important areas of flora in different locations of tall timber forests, woodlands and scrub. Varying terrain from sand coastal strips, undulating woodland and scrub to ragged mountain ranges.

The Stirling Range National Park, which lies north of nearby Albany on the southern coast, is abundant with 1,500 species of flora, 87plant species occurs nowhere else on earth. There are 123 orchid species, 38 per cent of all known Western Australian orchids
