Join me and Mark Rayner from Trekabout Photography as we join forces to bring you our 9 Day Wildflower Photography Tour into the heart of Western Australia’s Wildflower Country.
Dotted with small country towns we travel to hot wildflower destinations like Moora, Mingenew and Mullewa. Be prepared to photograph landscapes of Everlastings and clumps delicate Spider Orchids, Candy Orchids and if we are lucky the Ruby Spider Orchid.
During our tour there will be hundreds of different species of wildflowers to photograph and getting to our nightly destination can be a challenge as we stop for this wildflower or that shrub. Over the nine days we will search out the best flowering locations and adapt our itinerary to suit.
No trip into wildflower country would be complete without photographing the unique Wreath Flower (Leschenaultia macrantha) only found in sandy and gravely soils inland from Geraldton.
And where there are flowering plants there are birds, so there will be lots of opportunities to photograph various Parrots and Cockatoos, Rufus Whistlers and Pardalotes, Wattle Birds, Bustards and more.
It’s not all wildflowers and birds though, we will visit Yarra Yarra Lakes that is part of a large freshwater system and makes it’s way eventually to the coast, do an Astro Shoot and photograph the Pinnacles in the day and at night. We visit Australia’s only monastic town at New Norcia and see kilometres of golden Canola paddocks.
We spend a couple of nights in Perth to ensure we have covered your WA wildflower needs by visiting several national parks, reserves and wetlands to photograph as many species as we can including the Kangaroo Paw, Cat Paw and more varieties of Orchids.
