Did you know that Western Australia has the largest variety of wildflowers in the world? From July to October, more than 12,000 wildflower species carpet the Mid West region with their vivid beauty and lush scent, 60 per cent of which are found nowhere else on Earth.
Beginning in late June, the dry sand plains and coastal gorges of Kalbarri National Park transform into a vivid display of colour. In the five months that follow, over 1,100 species of Western Australian wildflowers will burst into bloom across the Kalbarri region.
If you time your visit to coincide with the wildflower season, be sure to stop in at the Kalbarri Visitor Centre for the latest wildflower viewing information. We have great local knowledge and also receive constant updates from local guides, making us the best place to find all the flower gossip including what species and where..
The visitor centre also serves as booking agent for wildflower tours and can advise you on departure times, itineraries and special features. You couldn’t do better than to start your wildflower search right from the centre of town!
Please remember, all Western Australian wildflowers are protected under State law and it is an offense to pick them.
For wildflower updates throughout the State visit the Tourism Western Australia website.
Kalbarri Visitor Centre will be adding their Wildflower Reports to this website for the 2015 season so look out for the updates from late June/early July 2015!
