Picnic Lunch in a bushland setting

Bon appétit!! A deliciously fresh picnic lunch awaits in a sheltered, bushland setting. A little, babbling creek flows close by and you may be lucky enough to hear a quacking frog or catch a glimpse of some splendid blue wrens who are regular visitors; venturing close to the picnic tables.
14:30

Afternoon Forest Foray

The afternoon focuses on the jarrah and marri forests on the top of the Escarpment which will provide you a wonderful contrast to the species found earlier in the day on the Coastal Plain. Be on the lookout for water peas, cow kicks, bunjongs and hairy jug flowers as well as striking blue lechenaultia, rambling coral vine and native clematis.
15:45

Orchard Visit

Depart your last port of call for the day: one of the many orchards located in the Darling Ranges which, with cooler temperatures and higher rainfall, provide the ideal environment for fruit-growing so, throughout the spring afternoon, as well as wildflowers, you will also enjoy valley vistas of blossom-laden fruit trees.

What should I wear on a wildflower tour?

As our wildflower tours feature beautiful bushwalks, we suggest  that you wear comfortable, casual clothes (long-sleeved tops and trousers recommended to prevent scratches and tick bites), closed, flat/low-heeled walking shoes and a wide-brimmed hat for sun protection.

What's included in the picnic lunch on the Wonderful Western Wildflowers full-day tour

The picnic lunch features cold meats (ham and chicken), freshly-prepared salads (rice, coleslaw and green), cherry tomatoes, baby beets plus condiments and fresh bread rolls.  Other dietary requests may be catered for with prior notice.

Will I see natural carpets of everlasting daisies on the Wonderful Western Wildflowers full-day tour?

Everlasting daisies are found naturally in the more arid inland regions of Western Australia such as the northern Wheatbelt, Gascoyne, Murchison, Goldfields and Coral Coast.  These locations are hundred of kilometres from Perth so that's why the only everlasting daisies you will find around Perth will have been planted.  The biggest display of pink and white everlastings can be found in the Botanical Gardens at Kings Park - well worth a visit!!
