Now we know it all sounds very far-fetched but it’s possible!

Allow us to help you – all you need to do is open your hearts and minds to the possibility and go with the flow!

Here is where your unforgettable adventure begins!  

September is a WILD, wildflower frenzy in Perth, with flowers blooming from left to right, which is good news because there’s no need for you to travel all the way to Japan to see all the cherry blossom madness.

Araluen Botanic Park

Here we have Araluen Botanic Park, an amazing botanic garden filled with hundreds of wildflowers, mixing both natural and developed beauty. Especially now in this season, you can truly see the beauty of Perth’s biggest display of tulips.

King’s Park and Botanic Garden

Next up we have King’s Park and Botanic Garden overlooking a breathtaking view of the city! No better place to look than being surrounded by lush botanical gardens, fully bloom with beautiful, colourful wildflowers. There is more than 25,000 individual plants and wildflowers blooming in spring and it’s going to be hard to cover them all, so how about you make that your challenge for this Spring season!

Yanchep National Park

If you’ve never been to Yanchep National Park and you’ve never heard of it until now, then you just got lucky because Yanchep National Park is worth adding to that itinerary list. The colours explode to life during this season! Imagine, walking through their nine trails, suitable for all fitness and age level by the way, then spotting some yellow buttercup, and a one-sided bottlebrushes, then a blue flowering Hardenbergia, or a parrot bush and some honey myrtles! So much to see! If you’re an animal lover, then bonus. You can pack a picnic and enjoy the views near Lake Loch McNess, that’ll be full of waterbirds, and the Kangaroos even join in on the fun around the banks!

Lesueur National Park

Be part of something unique and special and join in on the wildflower drive towards Lesueur National Park because almost 80% of the plant species in Western Australia are found nowhere else on Earth! Have you ever visited a national park that is home to one of the most diverse and rich floral areas in the world and is home to almost 900 species? If not, then you’ve definitely never been to Mount Lesueur National Park!

Coalseam Conservation Park

Now, this is a trick question, have you ever laid on a carpet of pink, gold, cream, and white Everlastings? Because almost everyone in Perth has! If you haven’t been, then you definitely need to check out Coalseam Conservation Park, truly remarkable beauty of blooming carpets of Everlastings.

Canola fields in York

Did you know? Rapeseed and canola are the same things! That canola cooking oil that you use is actually from the seed of canola, which are only grown for their seeds, but they are such an incredible sight to see. Wide rolling paddocks of endless gold whilst driving down the road. Truly a magical sight! Visit the canola fields in York and go to PetTeet Park, the only place where you can legally take hundreds of photos and you don’t have to worry about damaging plants or pesticides!

Now that you know that there is a diverse range of wildflowers, forests and native animals found in Western Australia that all contribute to making this region rare and unique, we hope when you hear someone say, ‘There’s nothing much to do in Western Australia,’ you can tell them all about the wildflowers blooming!

If you don’t believe this to be a truly remarkable, unforgettable experience, then there’s only one way to find out!
