WA

BLOOM­ING WILD­FLOW­ERS, BOLD PARK

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

With wild­flower sea­son not quite done, Novem­ber is a great time to soak up some nature along Perth’s many walk­ing tracks. WA has 12,000 wild­flower species, one of the world’s most di­verse col­lec­tions of na­tive blooms. Bold Park – more than 400ha of ur­ban bush­land in the sub­urb of City Beach, 8km west of the CBD – of­fers rel­a­tive wilder­ness in which to en­joy a se­lec­tion of them. Look for marno, coastal honey myr­tle, fan-leaved trig­ger­plant, sand-dune fringed lily and jar­rah, all of which should be in bloom along the park’s 15km of walk­ing tracks and horserid­ing trails.
