Bold Park Wildflower Walk

19 September

Cancelled if 37°C or above

September is the best time of year to see the wide variety of flowers that are in bloom in our local bushland areas.

Dates and times

Event information

This month the Friends of Bold Park Bushland volunteers will be highlighting some of our unique plants during their regular guided walks.

Several species of wattle are still holding their fluffy, bright yellow flowers while ash-grey flower stalks waft up from the green branches of the smokebush. The vines of native wisteria climb up of other bushes to display their bright purple flowers while the white flowers of a sundew poke up just above ground level.

It is also peak orchid season in Bold Park with pink fairy, spider and donkey orchids all emerging. The many flowers provide food for a wide variety of insects, providing pollination services in return to ensure more plants and blooms will appear next year.

Meet at the Western Australian Ecology Centre.

Prepare for your walk:

  • Wear sturdy, closed-in shoes and come dressed for the weather with a hat, jacket, sunscreen and drinking water.
  • This walk requires a moderate to advanced level of fitness. It is not suitable for wheelchairs and prams.
