Amazing Wild Flowers of Western Australia 4 Day Tour

Join us on this spectacular 4 day tour to world-renowned wild flower regions. In addition we take you to locations that are less frequented by other tours that offer us amazing orchids and flowers.

Day 1 

The tour will begin at Guildford train station at 8am (you are welcome to park/ meet us in Gidgegannup if you wish - exact location will be given to you once you have booked, or contact us directly for the cost of a pick up from your accommodation)

From here we will head North towards Moora stopping at a nature reserve along the way before arriving in time for morning tea. We will then go to a reserve in the area before continuing our journey North, stopping at an area renowned for its everlastings and other spring flowers and orchids. We will arrive at our accommodation, a homely cottage on a farm, in time for dinner.   L,D


Day 2

We will depart our accommodation after breakfast and spend the day exploring some lesser known local nature reserves that have not disappointed us in the past. We have found many different species of orchids and wild flowers as well as everlastings. We will return to our accommodation in time for sunset. 

After dinner we will head outside to do some Astro photography (weather permitting). B,L,D


Day 3

Today we will head north stopping at a couple of nature reserves that are well known for their spring flowers. We will then continue to Coalseam Conservation Park in time for lunch. In the afternoon we will walk through a couple of areas well known for their carpets of everlastings. 

Time permitting we will visit an old homestead which has rustic farm equipment and a ruined building.

(If we have not done Astro on the previous day we will do it tonight - weather permitting)

B,L,D


Day 4

Today we will say goodbye to our farm home and head back towards Perth. 

We will stop at several reserves, including a couple of granite out crops which are known to be home to several varieties of wild flowers.

We will arrive back by approximately 6pm. B,L


Please note:

The itinerary is subject to change depending on access and local advice on flowers in bloom.

We hope to see wreath flowers on both trips but this is more likely in September and a larger variety of orchids is normally in bloom in August.
