The Grevilleas are all coming into flower, as are the Eremophilas, Correas and Hypocalymmas. The Calothamnus and Verticordias are not far behind.

There are many Acacias in flower and budding, the Hakea varieties are putting on a magnificent show.One particularly pretty spot has a purple Hardenbergia climbing over a pink Thryptomene, intermingled with the red brushes of a Kunzea.

The Banksia's have a wonderful assortment of different colour cones and the Hovea pungens is making a brilliant splash of deep blue.


The Acacias are making a spectacular display and filling the air with their scent .Hakea multilineata is in full flower and the purple and pink of the Hardenbergias makes a beautiful show.The honey-eaters are enjoying all the flowers particularly the Correas and Grevilleas. Most of the Banksia species have a wonderful array of buds and flowers already.


Our flowering display continues. The Banksias are magnificent, much to the delight of the Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos who are enjoying the flower heads too. The Verticordias and Melaleucas are making a wonderful multicoloured show. Melaleuca fulgens is a beauiful shade of pale orange. Many of the Eucalypts are also flowering well.

The Callistemons are just coming into full flower now. Callistemon Glasshouse Country in the centre of the reserve is simply magnificent, standing about 6 metres high and covered in pale pink bottlebrushes.

The Melaleucas, Banksias, Verticordias and Chamaelauciums (Geraldton Wax) are looking exceptionally good. The Hibbertias are adding a splash of yellow and the blue/ purple of the Prostantheras and Alyogynes is a wonderful contrast.The Eremophilas have flowers ranging from brilliant purple to bright yellow and apricot .


The flowering continues. Our Melaleucas continue to flower in succession as do the Callistemons.The Riceflowers, Pimelea sp. make a good splash of colour and the many grevilleas throughout the reserve are magnificent and really appreciated by the birds.Kangaroo paws, Anigozanthus sp. are flowering some almost 2m in height.

November / December

The Callistemons are continuing to make a show. The local Call. rugulosa is flowering well and so is the Billarderia cymosa.The Calytrix tetragona, and Leptosperum varieties are coming into their own now too.

Most shrubs have a few flowers continuing. eg Correas and Baeckia, and there are always some Eremophilas. The reserve is a lovely spot to wander in the shade and listen to the birds. A picnic lunch in the gazebo is very pleasant and children love to play hide and seek along the many winding pathways.

January / February

We have Melaleucas budding and flowering . The Banksias are starting to put on a display also.The mesh blinds on the gazebo are very useful for blocking the wind and creating a lovely cool place to sit on a hot day.


Autumn is here and with it the Correas come into there own. We have many varieties in the reserve and they show what a versatile and variable group of plants they are. They range from very large shrubs to quite small compact bushes. The colour range is also amazing - clear orange, through yellow to the palest of pink and all shades of red.

The Banksias now have many varieties in bud and flower and the Hakeas are just starting.

The Beaufortia is a mass of red bottlebrush flowers and Eremophila tomentossum is looking spectacular with its orange flowers shown off against its silver foliage.

April / May

The Hakeas, Banksias and Calothamnus are all in bud and flower , and the purple of the Hardenbergia mixes beautifully with the pink of the Thryptomenes.The Correas are all coming out too and the Western Australian plantings are beginning to really colour well.The first Acacias are starting to scent the air also.

The flowering continues to increase. The Acacias are really starting to put on a magnificent display and the Honey Eaters are loving the Eremophila, Grevillea and Hakea flowers.Hakea orthorynchia is magnificent with its red flowers along the branches.


The weather is starting to get a little chillier but the ground has not really got cold yet so everything is still growing well. The Correas continue to show what a wide variety of flower shapes and colour they can produce. Correa lawrencia rosea is quite unusual in that it produces clusters of deep pink bells and is flowering prolifically at the moment. Banksia repens has lovely bronze velvet new shoots pushing out along the ground and Hakea clavata is filling the atmosphere with a beautiful scent.
