Where will you bloomin’ be?
Western Australia’s Coral Coast is wildflower country year round, however displays are at their best between July and October when inland areas are in full bloom and carpets of brilliant colour blanket the region.
Australia’s South West makes up part of Australia’s only biodiversity hotspot – and one of just 34 biodiversity hotspots around the world. Almost 80 percent of the plant species in the South West Australia bio diverse province are found nowhere else on earth. The diverse range of wild flowers, forests and native animals found in Australia’s South West all contribute to the rare and unique nature of the region. Wildflower season is from August to November.

Australia’s South West region
From August to November many wildflowers can be seen flowering in and around Bunbury. It is recommended to visit Manea Park (Somerville Drive, College Grove) and take the Pultenaea Loop walk trail to view the wildflowers at their best. Also view a variety of wildflowers on a walk along the sealed pathway at the Tuart Walk located at the end of Ocean Drive (between Bunbury and Dalyellup).
As the weather gets a bit warmer, October is the best time to view the wildflowers in and around Collie. Along the Coalfields Highway, 2km west of town (close to the cemetery), a walk along the footpath in an easterly direction towards the town, discover an abundance of wildflowers at your leisurely pace.
There are plenty of wildflowers to see Donnybrook. It is recommended to visit the golf course where the kangaroo paws are spectacular and a drive along Sandhills Road (south of town) will take you past an industrial area where you can view them by the thousands. At the Old Racecourse Nature Reserve, north of Balingup, there are signposted walkways directing you through a variety of wildflowers.
