Love that second photo, That will teach the old Boy to keep his big feet off the Wild Flowers. LOL

In the past, we have done a tour up from Perth in Wild Flower Season to spot them, in Coalseam Conservation park,

as well as other places along the way, as far North as  Mullewa, Taking in Wubin, Perenjori, and Morawa.

This trip was in an old Classic Caravan I had rebuilt over the previous 5 years, a few photos as follows..................

We have done the same tour as the wheat belt one with the addition of a few extra bits.
If you go to Perenjorie along the south road you'll find an amazing display of the wreath flowers,
Some of the rarer orchids are on the top of the Billiburning Rocks with great displays at the 12, 13, 14, 15, suites as well

Also if you go a bit south of the highway to Kwolyn ( free camp ) there's a good display of flowers there as well.

G'day H.H.   A long distance is nothing for a kiwi if there is a good feed of Bones N Batter at the end of it. LOL

The part of the Country which I refer to, hasn't be touched by fire (as yet) that is , but as Summer goes on, there is always the chance it could be, there are enough Fire Bugs running around down south to keep the Authorities busy with-out the little S***'s moving into the Central Wheat-belt as well.

I can't imagine too many Japanese tourists following us on this trip, not enough 5 star hotels in the out-back, as for the Africans, they will probably be banned because their tribal drums make to much noise in most Camp Sites !!

I don't know where you live H.H.  but what is distance when there is a welcome offered to anyone who can stand four days of temperatures over 40C deg like we are having at present.

"BY KORRIE BLOKE " IT'S WARM ENOUGH TO COOK A KUMARA ( SWEETPOTATO ) ON THE BONNET OF OUR NISSAN !!!

Its a long drive for us Jim, even further than driving to Auckland for Fush und Chups.... But from my limited knowledge of Ausralian flora I would suggest that after the fires the Wildflowers should be nothing less than spectacular as quite a few species need the heat of a fire to germinate the seeds,laying dormant like an ASIO sleeper till the conditions are right to burst forth into bloom...

They were just coming out last time we were there and it was worth being stranded in Esperance for the extra week to see the show...

We wish you luck, no doubt as the time gets closer many will join you on your nature ramble. Dont forget you will need a flag on a pole to carry around so your followers know where you are, a megaphone to control the crowds, an African to Kiwi dictionary, a Kiwi to Japanese dictionary and some cameras....

Is anyone planning a Wild Flower Tour of the Mid-West of W.A. this coming Season ?

We are thinking of doing this with our Caravan in June- July,

stopping at all free camp sites along the way, ( to save the hard earned ) and only using a caravan park to replenish our water supply, if we can't get water else ware ,

there is a very good circular road trip called the Wheat-Belt Way, all details can be found at this location...........

http://www.wheatbeltway.com.au/

NOTE ;  there are free camp sites listed on this site, for the whole trip.

Anyone interested ?????
