With Wildflower season just around the corner, Nikki shows us why the Midwest is rated one of the best spots in the country to see these incredible seasonal blooms.

  • WA has the largest variety of Wildflowers in the world!
  • From July - October, more than 12,000 wildflower species cover the mid- west region. 60 per cent of which, can’t be seen anywhere else on Earth!
  • In Kalbarri National Park, over 1,000 species of native flora progressively burst into bloom throughout the season.
  • Some of the best spots to see the wildflowers are on coastal cliff tops and in the gorges of Kalbarri National Park.
  • Some great spots include the Hawks Head and Ross Graham lookout, Nature’s Window, The Loop Walk Trail, and Z Bend lookout.
  • On the Loop Walk trail, you could spot a range of wildflowers like the Kalbarri Spider Orchid.
  • For a coastal wildflower experience, check out Rainbow Valley and Mushroom Rock, with orchids often found at Natural Bridge and Red Bluff sites.
  • With both the wildflower and humpback whale seasons coinciding this year, you could spot a migrating humpback whale on your travels!
  • Tourism WA is launching a wildflower tracker app, which helps connect you and the amazing wildflower displays, by identifying recent sightings.
