The Rainbow Coast and the South West of Australia is home to one of the richest floras in the world.
Starting late in August and stretching into the southern hemisphere summer, wildflowers can be seen throughout the region. The colours spring forth from the undergrowth like waterfalls of colour. From oceanside to far within the forest canopy wildflowers are captivating.
As this video shows, one of the best places to see the botanical bonanza is at the West Cape Howe National Park in the Albany Region of the Rainbow Coast.
West Cape Howe National Park contains the most southern point in Western Australia, Torbay Head. Almost completely covered in heathland and forest and bearing the force of the Great Southern Ocean, this National Park is worth the visit.
