Coalseam Conservation Park - the best everlasting wildflower carpets for 10 years
Everlastings are in full flower and look stunning. Camp amongst the everlastings with the Parks and Wildlife Service camp hosts now onsite.
Pindar - home of the Wreath Flower
Lots of very healthy wreath flower plants on both sides of the road but still very few flowers. Flowers will look even better by the end of August. To find the Wreath flowers head east 30kms off Mullewa on highway and turn in at Pindar. Turn left on the Pindar-Beringarra road and proceed 10kms north on dirt road. There are signs along the way. Please park thoughtfully and exercise caution on this road as trucks do use the road.
Mullewa - do the Wildflower Walk
The Wildflower Walk in Mullewa is looking magnificent. Walk starts opposite the caravan park and is approximately 3kms. Not long into the walk look for the orchid sign as there are several clumps of (green) snail orchids. Orange marker tape on orchid sites. Quite a few bush flowers are flowering along the track. A variety of everlastings on the second half of walk.
Visit the following tiny towns
Yandanooka - seriously good coverage of everlastings
This tiny town can be found between Three Spring and Mingenew and is currently in bloom with yellow carpets of everlastings. Take the Midlands Road between Three Springs and Mingenew (50km) to find the flowers.
Tenindewa - good coverage of everlastings
Off the Geraldton to Mt Magnet Road, turn off at 80km mark and head up the road to Yuna. Approx. 1km to the Pioneer Well sign and turn in. A good coverage of everlastings. Flowers are open now (mid-August), with more pockets of colour can be found along the Yuna -Tenindewa Road.
Canna - orchids central
An orchid hotspot with several types now flowering. Check out the dam area and the walk. A great overnight area to camp behind the fire brigade shed. Toilets and shower. Donations welcome.
