WA Wildflower Season

It’s getting close to the WA Wildflower Season for 2018. Western Australia has the largest collection of wildflowers with over 12,000 species of beautiful flora covering the land for six months every year, starting in the Northern plains of the Pilbara and Coral Coast in June and moving down to Perth’s Botanical Gardens by September. Over 60% of these spectacular wildflowers can’t be found anywhere else on Earth.

There are a number of walking trails and scenic drives to be explored during WA wildflower season and no better way to explore them than taking to the open road in a Go Kombi Campervan or Motorhome. With over 2.5 million square kilometers of spectacular colour and fragrance to be explored, a campervan or motorhome will give you the ultimate freedom to travel whichever way the wind takes you.

Enjoy the wildflowers close to Perth’s City Center at Kings Park’s Perth Botanical Gardens; wander through the wildflower trails in Whiteman Park, canopied by huge Jarrah trees, drive along the Jarrahland Trail where you can enjoy over 300kms of beautiful scenery; or hike through the Stirling Range National Park featuring several bushwalks and lovely picnic areas. Whilst you’re there, take in the breathtaking view at the top of Bluff Knoll. Bluff Knoll is the highest peak in the Stirling Range and offers 360-degree views from it’s summit, just over a kilometer above sea level.

The Jarrahland Trail is one of our favourites here at Go Kombi. You can start from our depot in Rockingham and take the coastal route where you can enjoy the beautiful beaches of Rockingham, enjoy dolphin boat tours and crabbing in Mandurah, stopping in at Bunbury and Busselton before hitting the Margaret River Wine region. All the while experiencing WA Wildflower Season at it’s fullest. It really is a spectacle that must be seen to be believed.

Some helpful tips for enjoying WA Wildflower Season:

  • TAKE nothing but photos – picking wildflowers is illegal and can attract a $2000 fine.
  • RESPECT private property and don’t trespass.
  • PROTECT canola crops and prevent the spread of disease by staying out of canola fields.
