- Tour Highlights
Join legendary travel writer Stephen Scourfield and wildflower expert Grady Brand on a fabulous day out searching for unique wildflowers in the Chittering Valley and surrounds.
Whilst the slope, soils and ancient granite outcrops of the Darling Escarpment are traditionally the ideal habitat and location to view wildflowers, profusion varies daily and is dependant on sunshine.
We visit locations all around the Perth region where we expect to find the finest wildflowers for you to see and smell, monitoring the progress of wildflowers once in season to ensure we minimise travel time. Areas such as Toodyay, Gidgegannup and Noble Falls are also prolific at various times.
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).
There is ample time to identify and photograph flowers
