Self-guided walks to explore at your own pace!
Take time out to explore the rich biodiversity of native wildflowers, in their natural habitat, with ten self-guided Sunshine Coast Wildflower Walks. Annually, during the months of July, August and September, walkers and nature lovers will discover gorgeously coloured floral displays, in their natural terrain, throughout the Sunshine Coast region.
The Sunshine Coast Council have compiled a selection of self-guided walks to introduce walkers to a variety of wildflower trails. With more than forty different species of breathtaking wildflowers to see, walkers have the added benefit of exploring at their own pace.
