WILDFLOWER WAY 3 days | Sealed roads

Buckleys Breakaway

Enjoy the slower pace of life and lose yourself in wonder at WA’s spectacular wildflower blooming. Spring is the perfect time to explore the blooms so mark your calendar and set off on this beautiful, colourful drive. The Wildflower Way runs 309km from Dalwallinu in the south to the coastal town of Geraldton. For your return to Perth, follow the new Midlands Route. Both trails are sign-posted and feature interpretive panels. Late August until October is usually showtime, with blossomings of everything from carpets of everlastings through to the unique wreath flowers around Pindar. Make your way north from Perth through the picturesque Swan Valley, historic New Norcia and into gorgeous Dalwallinu. There are so many wildflower trails around here, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Continue through wildflower hotspots including Wubin, Perenjori, Morawa and Mullewa searching out the beautiful blooms and engaging and informative interpretive panels and sculptures along the way. Wildflowers can sometimes bloom for as little as two weeks, so we recommend checking the Wildflower Hotspots page on our website or ringing the local visitor centres before setting off on your trip.

PATHWAYS TO WAVE ROCK 3 days | Sealed roads

Create even more memories by making your road trip to Wave Rock a journey of real discovery. This drive is best done over 3 days and will take you through the changing landscapes and charming farming communities of the Western Australian Wheatbelt. Choose your options from the various pathways linking the Shires of Bruce Rock, Corrigin, Kondinin, Kulin, Lake Grace, Narembeen and Quairading and always plan to stop at welcoming rural towns to enjoy some proper country hospitality. Route highlights include Kokerbin Rock, the Grain Discovery Centre, the wonderfully creative Tin Horse Highway at Kulin, Lake Grace (visit the outback winery) and of course, Wave Rock. The trail is punctuated with massive granite outcrops perfect for hiking and taking in some spectacular views. You’ll see natural bushland, expansive yellow canola fields and in spring, amazing displays of vibrant wildflowers and rare orchids. There are lots of places to camp out underneath a chandelier of stars and enjoy the space and serenity.
