Spring Wildflowers blooming on the Cape to Cape Track in Margaret River

Did you know Margaret River and Australia’s South West makes up part of a World Biodiversity Hotspot? This is one of just 34 global biodiversity hotspots, and the only one for Australia, with almost 80% of the plant species in our region found nowhere else on earth.  On one of our most recent guided walks, guests spotted a multitude of rare native wildflowers on the Cape to Cape Track including donkey orchids, pink fairy orchids, purple pansy orchids, vanilla lilies, old man’s beard and wild geraniums. Some of these rare flowers only bloom for a few weeks, so now is the time to come and witness the explosion of colour set against the stunning natural scenery of the Cape to Cape Track! Check out these beauties!
