The wildflower trails of the Coral Coast lead you through some of Australia's most breathtaking wildflower country. Blooms can be seen along the entire Coral Coast, in places such as Lesueur National Park, Cape Range National Park and the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, year round.
The flowers are more seasonal in some regions, such as Coalseam Conservation Park, which bursts into carpets of brilliant colour between July and November, with pink, gold, cream and white flowers covering a dramatic terrain of rugged cliffs, rocky outcrops and red soil.
Many varieties of wildflowers are found in abundance here, with the everlasting carpets transforming the usually sparse understorey of wattle scrub during the wildflower season. Everlastings, Banksias, Hakeas and Grevilleas will ensure an explosion of colour to delight your senses. Keep the camera handy to capture the diversity of wildlife that lives in the park including kangaroos, emus, echidnas, eagles and cockatoos. For the nature lover, this is truly paradise.
Whilst at the Coalseam Conservation Park, you can explore the site of Western Australia's first coal mine, view fossilised marine life in the riverbanks and take a walk along one of many walk trails through the park. With so much land to explore and so many botanical and geological masterpieces to see you may need more than a day to enjoy all the park has to offer.
Not far from here is Depot Hill - where you will find an abundance of wildflowers and native animals. It's a peaceful location for a picnic on the banks of the river under the gum trees.
Camping is available at two designated sites within the park. However, it is important to note that drinking water is not available so bring plenty with you. For more information and to book your camping experience online please visit here. Toilet facilities are located within the park.
Coalseam Conversation Park is located approximately five hours north of Perth, just 90 minutes east by car from the fishing town of Geraldton (about five hours drive or a one-hour flight north of Perth).
