Badgingarra

With a diverse landscape of high breakaways and undulating sandplains, Badgingarra bursts with the vibrant blooms of spring wildflowers, making it a highlight of the largest collection of wildflowers on Earth. Take a scenic drive or grab your camera and hit the Badgingarra Nature Trail on foot.

If you're travelling in wildflower season, between July and late September, the best way to reach Badgingarra from Perth is via the Everlastings Wildflower Trail, following the path of the Brand Highway. The journey takes just two hours and makes a great alternative route on your way to discover one of Australia's most unique natural landscapes, the Pinnacles.

Renowned for its dazzling 13,108 hectare show of wildflowers, Badgingarra National Park is home to some of Western Australia's most extraordinary and rare species, from yellow and black kangaroo paws to mallee, mottlecah and verticordia.

The best way to view and snap these beauties up close is to take a two kilometre stroll along the Badgingarra Nature Trail. Allow at least one hour and 45 minutes to walk the whole trail, including the optional one and a half kilometre detour. If you're exploring the bush in the early morning or late afternoon, you may also be treated to glimpses of emus, kangaroos, reptiles, bustards and the majestic wedge-tailed eagle. Pick up a trail guide and map from the nearby roadhouse.

Head up to Lang Lookout for expansive views of the surrounding plains, watch a sheep shearing demo, or time your visit to coincide with the Badgingarra Shearers' Competition or the Central West Coast Golfing Carnival.

To take it all in at your own pace, stay a night or two. Your options in and around Badgingarra range from budget-end at the caravan park, including chalets and cabins, to bed and breakfasts, bush resorts and farmstays. You also have a choice of a la carte dining, fast food and takeaways.

Badgingarra Nature Trail


The spectacular and diverse wildflower display along the Badgingarra Nature Trail is a sight not to be missed. Ensure you bring your binoculars and camera to capture the kangaroos, Wedge-tailed eagles and emus at home in the vast bushland.

Situated in the Badgingarra National Park, the 90 minute walk offers a wildflower display unique to the area including the extremely rare Badgingarra Mallee. For the avid walker, a 45 minute detour will reward visitors with magnificent views across the national park at the lookout. Keep an eye out for bustards and the Wedge-tailed eagle searching for its prey.

The trail crosses fairly rugged countryside and includes numerous steep hills. Appropriate supportive footwear is strongly recommended. The best time to see the wildflowers is between August and November. Be sure to collect a free information booklet about the trail.

The Badgingarra Nature Trail is just two and a half hours drive north of Perth and a short drive from Cervantes, home of the world famous Pinnacles.
