The region comes to life with dazzling display of delicate wildflowers between September and November each year. One of only 34 biodiversity hotspots in the world, and the only one in Australia, here you will find more than 2500 wildflower species on show. If you are lucky you may even spot one of 150 orchid species, many rare and endangered. Be on the lookout for the Splendid Spider Orchid and Giant Donkey Orchid, celebrated finds amongst botanical enthusiasts.
To see Spring in full flight, you would be wise to join Cape Naturaliste Trail Tours on one of their daily expeditions. Expect to not only find pockets of spectacular floral bloom as your track along some of the region’s most impressive coastline, but also glimpse whales frolicking in the waters below. Truly a sight to behold!
Other fantastic viewing opportunities exist at Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, the Cape to Cape Track, Ngilgi Cave, Meelup Regional Park and Ambergate Reserve
