Wild Flowers of Central Australia
Massed Flowering in Central Australia

Wildflower season in Australia is often a spectacular affair. Whilst some regions, such as along Australia’s coastlines, can almost assure an annual display of wildflowers, much of Australia’s arid region rely on seasonal rain.

Nowhere is the idea and visual spectacle of wildflowers more astonishing than in the desert region. A region where good seasonal rainfall can transform the outback in a mass of colour, created by thousands of flowering plants. These ephemeral plants are keyed to respond quick to any good rainfall, by growing, flowering and producing seeds. Together with many shrubs and trees, it is a spectacle worth seeing.

Massed flowering of this nature usually lasts only a couple of months at the most, occurring mainly in winter in the northern parts or in spring for the southern parts of Australia.

Massed Wild Flower Displays in Central Australia

Massed flowering can be witnessed throughout Central Australia, especially in the Alice Springs region. With the significant rain, the Annual Yellowtop can be seen as scattered flora among the many other flowering plants, or on mass, bobbing their heads in the wind, on either side the the roadways and on red desert sand. The following images of massed flowering of Yellowtops were seen south of Alice Springs, at the Ilparpa Claypans.
