Western Australia’s Wonderful Wildflowers - Sunday 26th October to Thursday 30th October

The Southwest corner of Western Australia is a world biodiversity hotspot. It has one of the most extraordinary floras in the world, with a large number of endemic species and many spectacular forms. In some ways the closest parallel to the ‘kwongan’ (heath) vegetation of Western Australia is the fynbos of South Africa, the two continents sharing a Mediterranean climate and Gondwanan heritage.

October is the height of the wildflower season in the south-west. This fully catered bus trip, operated by a quality wildflower tour operator and with expert guides provided by the Western Australian Herbarium, will visit:

  • Dryandra State Forest, a beautiful wandoo woodland in the wheatbelt, and home of one of the last surviving populations of the extraordinary numbat
  • Albany, a beautiful town on the granitic south coast, surrounded by National Parks and wonderful coastal scenery and vegetation
  • The Stirling Ranges, a biodiversity hotspot within a biodiversity hotspot
  • Walpole, nestled in the magnificent tall, wet karri and tingle forests of the south coast

The tour will leave Sunday morning 26 October and take 5 days (4 nights), with all accommodation, meals and National Park entrance fees included.

Cost: $1,325 (twinshare accommodation; single supplement $205 per person)

Please note: the tour will be limited to 20 passengers, so please book early
