The Busselton Wildflower Exhibition has been an annual event in the town for
over 90 years and is a great way to see the many Wildflowers of the area
showcased. The South West corner of Western Australia is renowned for
having one of the richest and most diverse flora in the world. This Exhibition
gives those unable to ‘go bush’ an opportunity to see a great variety of
Presented in an interesting and informative way, individual specimens of
flowers and orchids are displayed with their botanical names, creating interest
in both amateur and expert alike.
The Exhibition attracts visitors from far and wide. Wildflowers on display are
chosen by people who have obtained licences from the Dept of Biodiversity,
Conservation and Attractions (Dept BCA) to pick wildflowers in the week of the
Wildflower Exhibition. All pickers are conscious of the need to preserve native
flora and pick responsibly. Rare and endangered species are not picked.
Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association’s Joint CEO/GM Marketing, Sharna
Kearney said, “The South West region provides a rare opportunity to experience
exceptional concentrations of endemic wildflower species. You can get a close
look at a wide range of these wildflowers at the Busselton Wildflower Exhibition as
well as by getting out and about in the region.”
In addition to the Wildflower Exhibition visitors can view Busselton Camera
Club’s showcase of photographs, cake/produce stalls, light refreshments all
day, second-hand book stall, Geographe Community Landcare Nursery
sales/advice and Waterwise Garden’s Display.
Bring your camera along to test your skill at capturing the rare beauty of the
flowers on show.
