Flora and Fauna


The East Pilbara is located in the heart of wildflower country.

Each year from July to September the countryside comes alive as the dusty red earth and golden Spinifex grass of the Pilbara contrasts with the vibrant colors of its native wildflowers.

The countryside is littered with flowers of all colors, sizes and shapes, like the unmistakeable Sturt's Desert Pea, fluffy Mulla Mulla, the tall majestic Ashburton Pea or any number of the 65 species of Acacia (wattle).
