Mid-spring is the time when the flowers are at their best. Banksias and Grevilleas, Hakeas and myrtles, kangaroo paws, wreath-flowers, trigger flowers and a bewildering diversity of orchids, plus oh so many more, combine to create a colourful floral extravaganza.

We start and finish in Perth, concentrating on discovering the magnificent array of wild flowers in the state, while also gaining a deeper appreciation and understanding of the wider natural heritage: the itinerary will give us plenty of opportunity to see mammals, reptiles and the chance to catch up with many of Western Australia’s endemic birds.

The Perth hinterland is as diverse as it is fascinating. From the Darling Ranges we travel north through the Banksia-Eucalypt woodlands and mallee shrub and heathlands to Pinnacles National Park. Further north lies Kalbarri National Park, where a huge variety of wild flowers clothe the plains surrounding the Murchison River gorges.

Passing south from Perth through the coastal shrublands, many roads are lined with wild flowers, ablaze with colour. A canopy walkway will take us high into the famed Karri-Tingle and Jarrah-Marri forests. Coastal cliffs provide great viewing of breeding Southern Right Whales offshore of Fitzgerald River National Park. East lie the Dryandra woodlands home to endangered marsupials, while in the Stirling Range we will climb onto the summit ridge, with flowers in abundance and lizards much in evidence.
