Innes wild-flowers

During spring and autumn, our region blooms with wildflowers spreading their colourful beauty across the landscape. Coastal white mallee and golden wattles bloom profusely throughout early spring, with the vibrant Cockies Tongue providing splashes of red through the dense scrub. 

Take the boardwalk at Pondalowie Bay where you'll come across the Carcalla plant, or Pigface as it's commonly known.  This succulent was once bush tucker for the Narungga people.  This walk is a great place to find the hidden treasures of Innes National Park, so make sure you watch where you put your feet!

Some of the magnificent wildflowers you'll find in our region include Acacia (wattle coastal & longifolia), Templetonia, coastal bearded heath, common fringe myrtle, various pea flowers, rice flowers and melaleuca... bring your camera and take home some impressive memories!
