2022 RWS Festival

Its on again.. even BIGGER and BETTER than ever and this year the Show will be celebrating their 40th Anniversary!

The Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show began in 1982 to celebrate and showcase the abundance of floral diversity in the region. A tribute to the rugged and natural beauty of the region, the show continues to inspire amateurs and enthusiasts alike with its depth, breadth and quality of flowers on display.

This year it will be an extra vibrant celebration of the amazing flora the Fitzgerald Biosphere of Western Australia has to offer. So watch this space to find out when the program, filled with a wonderful choice of activities, tours and workshops will be released for bookings.

The show is internationally recognised as one of the best in the world and it is worth noting that the region is considered to be the "eucalyptus epicentre of the universe" with 150 species of eucalyptus in the area and that the Ravensthorpe Regional Herbarium will be open during the festival for guided visits.

Royal Hakea in the Fitzgerald River National Park

Gateway to the world class Fitzgerald River National Park and the unique Ravensthorpe Range, the region is host to some 20 per cent of Western Australia’s floral species– including some that are, as yet, undocumented.

The Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show brings nature to town in a way that enables tourists, enthusiasts, botanists and locals to enjoy the extraordinary biodiversity through a world class display.

Each year, dedicated, qualified and licensed pickers head out to their allotted destinations to gather flowers and deliver them to the herbarium in town. The specimens are then sorted, classified and placed on display. On average approximately 700 different species are featured at the show.

From the beginning, the show has been organised and run by passionate and knowledgeable army of volunteers and its continued success is a testimony to the dedication and enthusiasm of the Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show Committee volunteers and the local community.
