Walk Trails and Wildflowers
The natural bushland of the Lake Grace shire is alive with unique fruits, blossoms and foliage most times of the year. This small pocket of the state is listed as one of the 34 plant biodiversity “hotsposts” on the planet. This means, here is home to some of the most diverse and unique flora in the world. This region in particular is known for its western mallee, noted biologically for its diverse range of flora and high number of indigenous plant groups, including Grevillea, Hakea, Eucalypts and Acacia.
Within the reserves and roadsides of the shire you will find these and many other beautiful flowering plants and trees. All you need is a keen eye to spot their subtle, modest forms that are often different to the wildflowers commonly associated with Western Australia. Make the time to take a closer look – we are certain these local beauties will win you over!
These species and many more are found documented in the booklet Flourish, Native Flora and Fauna of the Lake Grace Shire by Annie Slarke and Elsie Bishop. For more information on where to find wildflowers or to purchase ‘Flourish’ call into the Lake Grace Visitor Centre.
