Wildflowers of Denmark, Western Australia

Wildflowers of Denmark Western Australia

Denmark and the South West Edge of Australia is home to one of the richest floras in the world.

There's always something blooming in the forests. In the winter months and into summer the colours change as each flower takes it's turn opening to the sun.

Down here in the deep south west of WA we're on the edge of the Walpole Wilderness Area, the Great South West Edge which stretches from Denmark to Agusta, 400km to the north west.

"The Walpole Wilderness Reserve is a International Bio diversity area as within its 846,000 hectares it contains hundreds of flora and fauna otherwise extinct. There are more than 4000 species of flowering plants, of which 80% grow nowhere else* This proliferation occurred after the isolation of the region from Eastern Australia in the early Cretaceous age some 100 million years ago."

*Wildflowers of Southern Australia, Margaret G Corrick & Bruce A. Fuhrer.

There are a few beautiful places to see wildflowers when they're in bloom. William Bay National Park has several short walks which take you through bushland to outcrops, beaches or lookouts all along the coast. Hike west from Lights Beach into the National Park along the Bibbulmun Track or bike the Wilderness Ocean Walk Trail from the Denmark Community Windfarm to cycle through the coastal bush. Bike the Munda Biddi Trail through Denmark during Wildflower Season for a visual treat!
