To the north of Perth along the Brand Highway or Midlands Route, visitors will witness an abundance of colour as wildflowers bloom spectacularly during wildflower season.
From Cervantes in the south to Geraldton in the north, and the inland farming towns of Dandaragan, Badgingarra, Eneabba, Carnamah, Coorow, Three Springs, Mingenew, and Mullewa, the region comes to life and offers a range of nature trails and heritage-focused activities.
The breathtaking hinterland of Coalseam Conservation Park and the stunning Lesueur National Park are premier locations for wildflower scouting and are among the most botanically diverse bush areas in WA.
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.
Lesueur National Park is situated near Green Head, and is one of the most diverse and rich floral areas in the world. The park is home to over 900 species, including many plants found nowhere else in the world.
Wildflowers bloom on Western Australia's Coral Coast all year round, but between late July and early October you’ll see some of the most stunning displays in the State, when blankets of brilliant wildflowers colour the outback landscape.

Things to Keep in Mind:
- Take nothing but photos. Picking wildflowers is illegal and can attract a $2000 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.
