Don’t you just hate it when people tell you to stop and smell the roses when you’re trying to do something else? It is essential to take some time off every once in a while and to do just that. If you can’t find roses, then the wildflowers in Perth will have to do.

You can do just that because September is the peak of wildflower season in Perth, making it the perfect opportunity to “stop and smell the wildflowers” in place of roses.

The wildflowers typically start blooming around late June, hits its peak in September, and slowly dies out by November. You can go to these trails on your own, or you can get a free guided walk where you can learn more about the different flowers if that’s your thing.

Some of the most popular spots for wildflower trails include the Margaret River, Lesueur National Park, and Perth Hills.

Things to do at the park

While you’re at the park, take this time to relax and leave technology behind even for a little while. Do a lap around the park, stopping to appreciate everything there is along the way.

Another thing you can do at the park is a picnic. There’s nothing like eating a sandwich while you watch the wildflowers and the other park goers in the area.

Finally, you can also choose to play with your kids in the open area. Play tag, frisbee or even a friendly game of rugby.

There are plenty of things to do at the park aside from watching the wildflowers bloom. You just need to be creative and open to the possibilities.

Don’t miss the chance to see the flowers for yourself! Make plans to visit Perth this September, and don’t forget that you can hire a car at Alpha Car Hire Perth to ensure that you can drive to these trails.
