Wildflower Season is in Full Bloom in Western Australia
Wildflowers begin to appear in the North West, Golden Outback and Coral Coast regions of the state in late-July, and extend through the South West until late-November. Over half of Australia's biodiversity hotspots and a significant percentage of its unique flora are found in Western Australia, making it home to the largest collection of wildflowers in the world.
