Wild Flowers

The Gascoyne Murchison area is part of West Australia's internationally renowned region for spectacular wildflowers.

Each year if the region experiences substaintial winter rains the red outback landscape is transformed into a colourful blanket of bloom; a sight so beautiful and atypical of the dry outback you have to see to believe.

In the north via the Wool Wagon and Kingsford Smith Mail Run Pathways you'll find iconic species like the scarlet red sturt desert pea royal purple mulla mulla complimenting each other in different bursts of colour.

Further south, while following the Miners or Wool Wagon Pathway, the red dirt is overcome with pink, white and yellow everlastings. The beauty of the wreath flower, purple vetch and red grevilleas is just stunning.

Peak wildflower season is dependent on the timing and abundance of seasonal rains but generally the best time to visit for wildflowers is from July to August.
