Wild Flowers + Gardens

One of the most striking features of the Grampians is the rich and colourful wildflower display best seen during late winter through to summer.

This is one of Australia's richest flora areas with over 1,000 species.

Twenty of these, including Grampians Thryptomene, Grampians Gum, Grampians Bauera and Parrot Pea, are found nowhere else in the world. From the yellow of the wattles and banksias, the white of the Grampians Thryptomene, Smokebush, Heaths and Hakeas, the pinks of the Heath, Calytrix and Micromyrtus the heathlands comes to life with colour.

Upon closer inspection, one can discover the rare tinsel lily, many beautiful orchids, spectacular orange and yellow peas and a multitude of other herbs and shrubs.

Most of these plants may be seen along the Asses Ears Road, Lodge Road and the Rose Creek Road as well as the Roses Gap Road, Mount Zero Road and Pohlner's Track. For the keener visitor, the Black Range wildflowers can also be spectacular.
