The South West is an area with an incredibly rich flora. It is home to some of the rarest orchids & carnivorous plants, tress and mountain bells. Over half of Western Australia’s 13 000 plant species grow in the South West region, and some cannot be found anywhere else in the world! Spring is the main flowering period for our wildflowers, between late August and December. However, there is something in flower every month in the South West.
The bushland surrounding the National Anzac Centre provides coastal heath and open scrub with jarrah forest and coastal banksia species. The Jarrah and Banksia woodland is interspersed by granite outcrops harbouring a range of herbaceous species. Take a stroll on one of our many bushwalking trails to experience the wildflowers we have on show.
