To the north of Perth along the Brand Highway or Midlands Road, visitors will witness an abundance of colour as wildflowers bloom spectacularly during wildflower season from late July to October.
Wildflower Country starts 1 hour, 45 minutes' drive north of Perth and comprises the inland farming towns of Dandaragan, Badgingarra, Eneabba, Carnamah, Coorow, Three Springs, Mingenew, Mullewa and their surrounding areas. The region comes to life with a range of nature trails and heritage-focused activities while the towns are also rich with history and heritage, and offer otherworldly stargazing opportunities year-round.
You can also discover or share your own recent wildflower sightings with the Western Australia Visitor Centre's Wildflower Tracker app.
Keep in Mind:
- Take nothing but photos. Picking wildflowers is illegal and can attract a $2,000 fine.
- Respect private property and don't trespass.
- Protect canola crops and prevent the spread of disease by staying out of canola fields.
Please take care not to trample wildflowers - stick to paths wherever possible and if you do wander off the path, be careful where you stop to avoid treading on wildflowers.
