Wildflowers - Flora of Central Australia

Spring is a popular season for many people, a great time for a holiday break, and for the flora enthusiasts, the perfect period to experience and enjoy the wild flower season throughout Australia.

It is not just the wetter regions of Australia that have beautiful floral display, contrary to some beliefs, the arid heart of Central Australia can also put on a beautiful spring wildflower show.

For those in the know, the word is out that the ‘Red Centre’ is one of the most perfect places to visit this spring, with local talk being that this years spring wildflower season will be spectacular. The unusual amount of rainfall from the beginning of the year is the trigger for an event that happens once every 15 years, and already wildflowers are evident throughout the region.
 

For those driving to or through Central Australia, the landscape on either side of the highways and outback roads provide a glimpse of the beauty of the local landscape, with flowering shrubs and trees, and swathes of plants in flower. Under the right conditions, visitors are greeted with the vistas of yellows, purples, blues, and much more.

If you are visiting Alice Springs you can get a close up view of the wonderful plant life, together with plant name tags at either the Olive Pink Botanic Garden or the Alice Springs Desert Park.
