Where to see spectacular wildflowers in Western Australia

Western Australia is home to one of the largest collections and most impressive displays of wildflowers on Earth. If you’re planning a trip to Western Australia, it’s worth adding a wildflower trail to your itinerary to see these spectacular super blooms.

What’s a wildflower super bloom?

Have you been lucky enough to see a wildflower super bloom? A super bloom is a rare desert botanical phenomenon that usually occurs after a long wet period germinates seeds that have laid dormant in the soil leading to fields of flowers blooming at once.

Deserts in America and South America produce some of the world’s most spectacular super blooms, but here in Australia, we are fortunate to experience a version of super booms along the west coast.

Western Australia is home to one of the largest collections and most impressive displays of wildflowers on Earth. There are more than 12,000 species of wildflowers in Western Australia, 60% of which can’t be found anywhere else on Earth.  Between winter and spring, you can delight in seeing a carpet of brightly coloured native flowers bloom at once in various locations in Western Australia.

Western Australia’s wildflower season begins in June in the north of Western Australia and moves south as it turns to spring ending in November on the south coast. 775,000 people flock to Western Australia’s many biodiverse rich national parks to see this natural botanical phenomenon each year.

If you’re planning a trip to Western Australia, it’s worth adding a wildflower trail to your itinerary. Many national park trails lead you through some of the most breathtaking wildflower displays where you can see fields of Everlasting Daisies, Tall Mulla Mulla and Kangaroo Paws, Banksias, just to name a few.
