On the cool Southcoast of Western Australia
Where to find our wild blossoms
The South Coast of Western Australia is known as a flora diversity hot-spot
and is awash with native blossoms every September to early November. The peak is usually late September
dependent upon weather conditions. There are many walks in bushland all around the area where
flowers can be found.
