Western Flora Caravan Park

Title: Western Flora Caravan Park
Date: September 8th
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane

During the Wildflower season, the Western Flora Caravan Park offers daily tours of the stunning local plant life.

  • Aboriginal people used the Sandpaper Wattle to sharpen their tools.
  • The Geraldton Wax is a plant pollinated by insects. The plants don’t all flower at the same time, so as to preserve food for the insects.
  • The tours offered are completely free, and will give you an in-depth knowledge of the spectacular local flora
  • To compensate for the lack of key nutrients in the soil, the Climbing Sundew is able to trap insects. It then uses a digestive enzyme to dissolve them over a 24-hour period, eating them alive.
