Waddy Forest: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Coorow Wreath Flowers

These very rare flowers are only found in one area in the world - the Mid West. Coorow is lucky enough to have numerous locations of Lechenaultia Macrantha, also known as Wreath Flowers, around its Shire. Such locations include the Williams Road gravel pit (32 kilometres from Coorow along the Coorow Latham Road) and Muriels Lane (en route to Williams gravel pit).

Take the opportunity to see these magnificent plants in their prime while they are out, only from July to October annually.

Coorow Farm Wildflower Trail

The Coorow Farm is situated just 1 kilometre from the town centre and is host to a variety of wildflowers including orchids, everlastings and natives. Wildflower times are between July and October annually depending on weather patters.

The trail around the farm can be either walked or driven.

Also found on the Coorow Farm is the site of the original settlers of Coorow, the Long Family Homestead. William and Sara Long first settled the area in 1862 raising sheep and horses. The horses were shipped to Singapore, where they were used by the British forces and the wool was taken by dray to Dongara and Perth.

The ruins of their homestead can be seen on the final leg of the trail approximately 550 metres from the exit to Coorow Latham Road.

Brochures including map and locations can be found at the Coorow Community Resource Center or the Shire of Coorow Office - both are on Main Street.

Coorow Wildflower Drive

The extensive display of vibrant colour along the Coorow Wildflower Drive is a breathtaking sight to see. Renowned for the overabundance of wildflowers, you will not be able to take your eyes off Mother Nature's work at its best. There are many opportunities for you to stop and capture the scenic views on camera.

Meander through the bushland of Alexander Morrison National Park to see the wildflowers close up and keep an eye out for the occasional kangaroo, emu or kookaburra. For the more adventurous, explore various limestone caves throughout the park.

Situated just three hours' drive north of Perth, the wildflowers of Coorow will be in full bloom between late July and early October. If time permits, try to include a visit to the idyllic coastal town of Green Head or the fishing town of Leeman. Relax on the pristine beaches or take a boat out to try and catch the illusive "Big One".
