Wildflower Display at the Visitor centre

At this time of year, the Mid West is swathed with colour and beauty as the wildflowers start to bloom.

The Mid West in particular attracts large amounts of visitors for its unique flora and as part of the wildflower season the City of Greater Geraldton has jumped on board to bring the flowers to you.

Launching on Monday 15 August, the Visitor Centre’s Wildflower display showcases a collection of freshly cut and dried bunches of some of the Midwest’s flora from the soft pinks of the Pink Thryptomene to the greys of the Common Smoke Bush (Conospermum).

The Visitor Centre also issues weekly wildflower reports which show where to go to see the stunning natural displays of wildflowers.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the display provides visitors a taste of what to expect when arriving in wildflower country.

“The Mid West is renowned for its natural beauty during wildflower season and what better way is there to promote the season by displaying the wildflowers right here in Geraldton?” he said.

“By having the display flora enthusiasts can learn what type of flowers grow in the area and where they can find them.”

The display is a prelude to the Mullewa Wildflower Show, which starts on Thursday 25 August and runs through to Sunday 28 August.

Start planning your own wildflower adventure today and combine it with the ArtDrive, a self-drive tour throughout the City region that explores colourful art installations centered around the themes of wildflowers, rural life and Aboriginal culture.
