Wildflower splendour in Western Australia

Springtime wildflowers, North East Wheatbelt

September 26 (TravelAndy): Western Australia is home to an array of natural attractions that drive visitors from near and far to see nature at its best.

The state is currently experiencing one of its biggest wildflower seasons on record, with an abundance of blooms on show from north to south. Between now and November, visitors can check-out more than 8,000 species of wildflowers throughout Western Australia’s southwest.

Hot spots include the Cape to Cape Track, Fitzgerald River National Park, Stirling Range National Park and Porongurup National Park.

Nature lovers can also witness the annual southern migration of whales between September and November, as humpback and southern right whales make their way from the birthing waters of the Kimberley to the southern Antarctic waters.

The best way to witness the whales at play is on a guided tour off the coast of Perth, Dunsborough, Augusta or Albany.
