Wildflowers in the Perth Hills where to discover them?
Wildflowers are at their best in late winter early spring, August and September in the Perth Hills, so grab your walking boots and hit some of the trails we’ve hand-picked below to see nature in all its glory.
Jorgensen Park – on the outskirts of Kalamunda Town Centre you can access this expansive park, which boasts a diverse range of wildflowers and a network of trails to choose from. You can also bring your dog, as this park is dog friendly
Whistlepipe Gully – Another great dog-friendly walk accessible from either Kalamunda or Forrestfield; this walk through the Mundy Regional Park is sure to delight wildflower fans
Lesmurdie Falls – Always a highlight of a visit to the Perth Hills, Lesmurdie Falls is a great spot to take in the views across Perth. However head over the creek and up across to the northern side for the greatest selection of wildflowers
Lions Lookout – Even just a short stroll from the lookout car park you will find an abundance of wildflowers. For the more adventurous, the Lions Lookout walk not only gives you great views over the city and Bickley Reservoir, but also some of the wildflower viewing in the region. Please note, the walk has some taxing climbs and steep descents
Rocky Pool Walk – This Kalamunda favourite doesn’t disappoint at wildflower time, with the beauty of both the natural flora and the flowing creek and waterfalls at their best in early spring
You can also get a great view of the wildflowers without walking a trail by stopping at the South Ledge Lookout on Mundaring Weir Road (in between Kalamunda and Mundaring Weir Dam). It’s just a short walk from the car park to the viewing area.
Don’t worry if you don’t know your grevillia from your boronia or you milkmaid from your blue leschenaultia, the friendly team at the Perth Hills Visitor Centre are available every day until 4pm to help you plan your wildflower viewing, provide trail maps and point you in the right direction for a post-walk warm drink at one of Kalamunda’s well-known cafes. Here you can also find out about some of the local tour operators offering wildflower and nature tours.
The visitor centre stocks a free leaflet displaying the various wildflowers you can see in the area and for those wanting more in-depth information, you can purchase the ‘Interactive Guide to the Flora of Kalamunda National Park’ DVD which provides images and information on nearly 500 species native to the Kalamunda region.
