Self Drive Wildflowers

The “3 Day Wildflower Way” Self Drive Route

Come drive this newly developed wildflower trail from Dalwallinu through the stunning Northern Wheatbelt, finishing in coastal Geraldton. Each spring this country bursts into bloom with ‘carpets’ of Everlastings to through to the unique Wreath Flower. Wildflowers bloom during spring time, which typically runs from late August to October. Wildflower displays are subject to seasonal variations and weather conditions so before heading out, we recommend you contact the Perenjori Visitor Information Centre.
