Corrigin

Corrigin Wildflower Drive

Like most rural areas, Corrigin experiences some beautiful sights during the wildflower season, which is usually in September / October every year. The Corrigin Wildflower Drive starts opposite the Dog Cemetery, 5km west on the Brookton Highway and takes you on a well maintained gravel track to the Scenic Lookout, which overlooks the town site and wheat bins. Variety is the keynote as the plants change with soils through woodlands, thickets and shrub land. For further information view the Corrigin Wildflower Drive brochure or call into the Corrigin Community Resource Centre at 55 Larke Crescent, Corrigin.

Kulin

Kulin Wildflowers

The South West region of WA is internationally recognised as being one of the most biodiverse areas in the world! The Kulin Shire has an abundance of wonderful wildflower reserves and roadsides which put on a spectacular seasonal show of colour.

Lake Grace

Lake Grace Wildflowers

The wildflower season is one of the Eastern Wheatbelts most precious natural treasures attracting visitors, wildflower groups and scientists annually. To appreciate these remarkable displays there are many nature reserves with walk trails within the shire. Although some varieties start in July the season is typically from late August through to late October. 

The natural bushland of the Lake Grace shire is alive with unique fruits, blossoms and foliage most times of the year. This small pocket of the state is listed as one of the 34 plant biodiversity “hotsposts” on the planet.  This means, here is home to some of the most diverse and unique flora in the world. This region in particular is known for its western mallee, noted biologically for its diverse range of flora and high number of indigenous plant groups, including Grevillea, Hakea, Eucalypts and Acacia. Within the reserves and roadsides of the shire you will find these and many other beautiful flowering plants and trees. All you need is a keen eye to spot their subtle, modest forms that are often different to the wildflowers commonly associated with Western Australia. Make the time to take a closer look – we are certain these local beauties will win you over! These species and many more are found documented in the booklet Flourish, Native Flora and Fauna of the Lake Grace Shire by Annie Slarke and Elsie Bishop. For more information on where to find wildflowers or to purchase 'Flourish' call into the Lake Grace Visitor Centre.
