The good winter rains have resulted in spectacular flowering in the Great Western Woodland's southern sandplain heath. Verticordias, grevilleas, melaleucas, petrophiles, isopogons, stylidiums, calytrix and many more vied to be the most prolific. Nearby woodlands were full of birds and flowering eucalypts, while many orchids were flowering around the granite outcrops.
