"Mingenew - Home of the Gorgeous Everlastings!!" Mingenew by aussirose

Mingenew Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 92 photos

This is my 3rd page of wildflowers from our recent wildflower viewing trip. Mingenew is the home of the everlastings or paper daisys as they are commonly called. It wasn't a very good year this year because we didn't get much rain. On a good year these gorgeous flowers cover the fields like a carpet. Anyway, we did see a few.
And if you like these ones, then why not check out my other wildflower pages - Perinjori and Watheroo.



This is a flame grevillea. These were everywhere lining the outback roads.

Funny story.....when you first see these gorgeous flowers you simply have to stop and take some pictures. Unfortuinately first sightings arn't always the best..... so you spend the next hour stopping at various locations along the road to get the best pic!

By this time, you begin to realise...."Hey! These lovely flowers are everywhere!! ...Why am I so stressed about getting that ultimate pic?!!"
.......And then you begin to relax.....

Then you get home and realise your first pic was the best anyway!!!
lol ;o)

I am sure you can relate to this.



Smoke bush was everywhere too.

It made a nice contrast in amongst the yellow and green.

Doesn't look much in the photo.....but in the wild, this flower is just lovely!! :o)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Stunning fields of Australian Everlasting Wildflowers especially in Coleseam National Park.
  • Cons:Way, way out in the sticks a full day car travel north of Perth south/east of Geraldton.
  • In a nutshell:Only visit in Wildflower season in Spring. Don't bother any other time.
