Our experienced guide will help you identify rare and delicate wildflowers including renowned everlastings, orchids, red and green kangaroo paw, banksias, bottle brush and Western Australia’s most famous orange flowering Christmas trees. During the day at an opportune time (hopefully close to the gorgeous wildflowers), we stop for our included lunch (venue dependant on itinerary).
