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.
