One of Western Australia’s major tourist attractions is wildflower season which peaks in swathes of glorious colour in spring. There are more than 12,000 species of wildflowers in the state and 60% of those are found nowhere else on Earth. Each region hosts its own variety of blossoms: we were at Ravensthorpe in the Fitzgerald Biosphere in the south-west of the state. Even in mid-winter, with some determined searching and a little luck, we found plenty of delicate blooms. Some are single, tiny flowers while others grow in large clusters, in all the colours of the rainbow.
