Wildflower season (August to November) is the ultimate time to experience the incredible biodiversity of this region. Every shade and shape of flower can be found, and each offers a glimpse into the deeper story of this region’s ecology and geology. Why is the Capes region a hotspot for carnivorous plants and orchids? See the awesome trigger flowers in action!
As you explore the banks of the Margaret River, your expert guide will share with you the fascinating properties of not only the surrounding wildflowers, but also bush plants, the bizarre creatures that dwell in the river (such as the endangered Hairy Marron and the prehistoric vampire fish), and the story behind the failed seduction that gave this town its name.
We begin at the Hairy Marron Cafe (at Rotary Park, just 100m from the Visitors Centre) and head through the old settlement before winding under a forest canopy along the glistening Margaret River, and dipping our toes in the water. We return to the Hairy Marron Cafe at the end to relax with a coffee or whatever takes your fancy (own cost).
