Hi Rocka,

We are going up there this week after seeing my doctor to check my scans

after finnishing my chemo,

we would like to see any wildflowers but if not it will give us a brake we have

not been on the road for quite a while.

Regards Dave.

Was through there a fortnight ago with Australasia Safari.Geraldton to Mt Magnet the flowers are starting to die off. Only saw a small patch of everlastings . The Mulla Mulla are pretty thick though, both purple and white. We were only on the main road for the most part but still pretty, but no where near what has been reported in the past. Didn't go down to Paynes Find.

BTW for those travelling east the golden gravillea along the Gt Eastern Hwy between Kal & Southern Cross are very spectacular.

HI Rocka
This weekend we went Geraldton to 30ks other side of Mingenew flowers very sparce in that area and in 2/3 weeks would have to agree with the hand brake will be too late. But hiting the road is a bonus just cause and there will be plenty of activity as that will be about the time a great harvest will be starting

Thanks everyone for the updates might leave it for another time and go earlier in the season.
we have to go to Kalgoorlie and then down to Esperance might have better viewing that way.

dont get the carpets of wildflowers that way but you should be hitting the coast a good time to see coastal wildflowers

You dont want to think the everlastings on the roadsides are all there is, after they have died off there is still plenty too see. There are heaps of reserves through the midwest where you may have to hop out of the car and walk into the bush a bit but you will find all sorts of things. A bit closer to home you could head up to Wongan Hills early November and check out the verticordias (the feather fllowers) in the Reynoldson reserve just up the road to Ballidu. I has been a good year rainfall wise there so they should put on a good show.
