When the big reds and yellows of Eurardy Reserve come out to play, they draw an abundance of local birds and insects.
The big reds are Feather-flowers, Claw-flowers and Grevilleas, and when in bloom they cast flushes of palest coral, rosy red and vivid scarlet across the landscape.
The big yellows are Acacias and ground-hugging Everlastings, which stand in gorgeous contrast to the blue sky above. And that’s just the beginning – with flowers in pinks, purples, blues and whites all adding to the heady mix.
No wonder Eurardy is one of the most outstanding wildflower destinations along WA’s Batavia Coast.
In 2003 the Wildflower Society of Western Australia began to help with surveys on the reserve, which they still help with today. On their first survey 481 native plant species were identified, and many were pressed and mounted in a field herbarium that’s now regularly updated.
