The Cape Range National Park is home to 630 species of flowering plants - the Quobba coastline out of Carnarvon has some very unusual looking flowers.
The brilliant Red Sturt Desert Pea, which flowers in late winter (June to August) is a particularly popular flora species in the Cape Range along with the purple Mulla Mulla flower. The brilliant Red Sturt Desert Pea and the even rarer White Sturt Desert Pea populate the area. The Green Bird Flower, shaped just like a hummingbird, is found within the Cape Range National Park and in Carnarvon town.
Each year, the town of Carnarvon and its surrounds are flooded with everlasting flowers, just like those found at Coalseam Conservation Park near Mingnew. Carnarvon's everlastings can be found in patches and fields along the North West Coastal Highway and sometimes at Rocky Pool. Carnarvon's everlastings generally start in late July going into August - with everlasting carpets intertwining with purple Dampier Pea, thriving in the red Pindan dirt – very colourful!
