Wildflowers

The Fitzgerald River National Park is recognised as one of the most botanically significant parks in Australia, with nearly 20% of Western Australia’s flora species found there. Many of them are endemic and, as yet, not all are documented. There are flowers in evidence all year round, however Spring is the best time to view all of the regions species.

The Area embraces many different land forms, ranging from ancient rocky mountain ranges, vast sand plains and rich red soils, promoting a wide variety of plants. The flowers located in the Fitzgerald Coast region are special because they are unique and diverse; botanists have counted more than 1660 plant special within the Fitzgerald River National Park alone. An estimated 500 species are located in the rest of the region, therefore, 25% of all wildflower species in Western Australia are found here.
