Hi David & Michelle ...
I have just noticed the wonderful wildflower pictures you have scrolling across the top of the of the site. Just beautiful!
We did see the Giant Hakea when we travelled out to Isralite Bay in 2009 - we had never seen such a plant before.
On our next trip over your way we will have to spend a lot more time just being amongst this display and ... we have to find those wreath flowers.

He Navigator,

The wreath flower is abundant around Morawa & north - the Canna Store area on the way through to Mullewa.

Canna has a local display of many orchid varieties and a diverse range of wildflowers as well.

They are always dependent on the seasonal rains, so it is worthwhile checking before departing that the season has been productive.

I trekked up to Mt Augustus a few years back - complete with a recent newspaper article about how wonderful the wildflowers were, only to be dismayed at the total absence of them.

When asked at the tourist centre about the misleading info, we were advised that the article was a 'reprint of the year before'.

Luckily we were able to treat our eastern states visitor to massive displays at Kings Park - just a tad closer to home.

Happy travelling

Regards - Phil

I've always been able to find wreath flowers on the side of Goodlands Rd north of Wubin.

How are you Chicka and Robyn?

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

These photos and many others have come from the huge wildflowers collection link in this blog - Wildflowers Photos - The Blog

I have been thinking about a wildflower database - similar to the fish species I wrote years ago and have not had time to finalise. I am still working towards it but have several other tasks on the production line before I get there.

wildflowers are a bit sparse this year out from perenjori, last year was a bumper year but patchy would be the best description this year.

best place for wildfloers right now is much closer to home,

i went for a walk along whistlepipe gulley last night near forrestfield and the flowers were amazing

(appolagies for the phone pics)

Very nice :)
I found the mountain bike trails around Kalamunda and into Mundaring etc were in bloom quite early this year too. Haven't been up for a few weeks unfortunately. People should remember - the further south, the later the wildflower season.
