WA is blessed with one of the most diverse and beautiful arrays of wildflowers in the world. Manyof these flowers can still be seen in Kings Park in October and even into November.

If you only have a few minutes, take a walk around the garden beds outside Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop and the entrance to the WA Botanic Garden. If you have an hour, extend your walk into the Botanic Garden. For a longer walk, head down the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, over the glass bridge and along Roe Gardens, making time to walk the Bushland Nature Trail on your return to see wildflowers in their natural habitat. There are dozens of beautiful wildflowers to see this spring.
