Kalbarri Wildflowers

  FroHybrid Cowslip Orchid Richard Burges 1m July to October, more than 12,000 wildflower species carpet the Mid West region with their vivid and vibrant beauty, 60 per cent of which are found      no where else on Earth. Some also are very hard to find so tread lightly and be prepared to walk a little to find the more rare and smaller species.

 The climate does play a role in the abundance and variety that appear in the National Park every year. If we experience a particularly dry winter the flowers will be less and the rarer species harder to find, but one thing we can tell you is you will be amazed at what you will experience in the Kalbarri National Park.

Did you know that Western Australia has the largest variety of wildflowers in the world? With over 1100 species found in our National Park.

Beginning in late June, the dry sand plains and coastal and river 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 can burst into bloom across the Kalbarri region.
