See delightful displays of WA wildflowers
West Australian wildflowers are renown throughout Australia. if not indeed, the world! Tourist come in their throngs around September and October to see these growing. The wildflower collection in Western Australia is the largest on Earth. In total, there are more than 12,000 species, of which over 60% are not found anywhere else on Earth!

They colour the landscapes all over Western Australia, as each spring they begin to emerge. They can then last for as long as about 6 months in some cases. This is a list of four towns that have shows/displays of these. In order to pick these, you do need a license as it is strictly forbidden to pick these without a license.

Chittering Wildflower Show

Each year in Spring, Chittering comes alive with wildflowers. The town of Bindoon will celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring with its annual Spring Flower Festival. The town of Bindoon also has its gardens out in colour and the Bindoon Tale Trail for those wishing to take a stroll through the history of Bindoon and Chittering.

Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show & Spring Festival
This Wildflower Show will be on from 10th to 22nd September 2018, and you can see them at the Ravensthorpe Town Hall, at 35 Dunn Street.

Ravensthorpe Shire has some 1,800 wildflower species, many of which are unique to Western Australia. The Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show and Spring Festival is an opportunity to see wildflowers on the show, as well as in their natural state.

With spring just around the corner, now is the time to plan your visit to the annual Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show & Spring Festival. The Wildflower Show showcases the beauty of native flowers with 600-700 botanically identified specimens on display.

These have been picked under license by volunteers and have been botanically identified with the help of experienced botanists - all this within their new purpose-built herbarium.

At this show, there will be:
600-700 labelled specimens on display
Tours welcome parking for coaches
Soup and Devonshire Teas
Craft stall
Art Exhibition
Patchwork Display
Country Carnival
4WD Tag Along Wildflower Tours
Guided Bush Walks

Orchid walks in the morning and afternoon

Ravensthorpe offers an opportunity for visitors to become absorbed and see all the abundant local flora, and a vibrant community.

This show is possibly the furthest away if you live in Perth, as Ravensthorpe is a town 541 km south-east of Perth and about 40 km inland from the south coast of Western Australia.

For this reason, you would be best staying in the region and seeing more of our beautiful wildflowers around this area. You would also see some during the drive if you live in Perth.
