Wildflowers are bursting in different locations each week throughout spring, so if you want to be sure to find the best spots, a tour is the most reliable option. These guys are out on the tracks and trails every day and know them back to front. They’ll also be able to share heaps of interesting facts about the flora you come across.

If you prefer to go self-guided, you can purchase maps and books from one of the region’s visitor centres, and we have also put together a list of top wildflower hotspots across the region from Busselton to Augusta.
