Castle Rock in the Porongorups

The Stirling Range National Park and the Porongurup Range near Albany, and the nearby Fitzgerald National Park near Ravensthorpe, produce spectacular displays of Australian wildflowers during the annual season from September to late November.

The rugged peaks of Stirling Range National Park, which rise to more than 1,000m above sea level, feature stark cliff faces, sheltered gullies, magnificent views and a rich diversity of unique and colourful wildflowers. The park is one of the world’s most important areas for flora with 1,500 species, many of which grow nowhere else, packed within its boundaries.

The Porongurup, South West of Australia is home to some of the richest floras in the world. There are more than 4,000 species of wildflowers. 80% grow nowhere else. This proliferation occurred after the isolation of the region from Eastern Australia in the early Cretaceous age some 100 million years ago.
