Flowers for Mother’s Day

Flowers are a traditional gift to give on Mother’s Day but how about making them a little more special with a trip to experience WA’s wildflower season?

Let’s be clear, when we talk about WA’s wildflowers, we’re not just talking about a few daisies in a field. This truly spectacular flower phenomenon sees over 12,000 species of wildflowers come into bloom. This is indeed impressive but when you consider that over 60 per cent of species are native to Western Australia, you’ll soon realise that a trip west is the only way to see these blooms.

What makes a trip even more appealing is that the season lasts for six months, from June to November, some of the most pleasant months to visit WA. There are few places better to see these wonderful blooms than Kalbarri National Park. With its sandy plains and coastal gorges, Kalbarri puts on its vivid display of over 1100 wildflower species from June onwards.

And what could be better than including the wildflower extravaganza in a 16-day tour of all that WA has to offer. AAT Kings Western Wonderland guided holiday takes you on a tour of WA that, as well as the wildflowers, gives you the opportunity to:

  • indulge your taste buds with the local food and wine of Margaret River
  • take the time to explore Fremantle and its markets
  • feel the sand between your toes on Shell Beach
  • eat dinner at the iconic Exchange Hotel after trying to find your gold fortune in Kalgoorlie
  • see the wild dolphins swim into the bay at Monkey Mia.
