The Australian Continent is 7.692 million sq kilometres. Western Australia is the largest state with 2.646 million sq kilometres. Everything is big in WA, this includes the worlds largest species of wild flowers, some 12,000 species and “We know where they lurk!”. Come see WA with us. We will show you among other things:
- Red Dirt and those elusive special flowers among the carpets of others.
- A state with the worlds largest flower belle époque of 12000+ species.
- 360 degree horizons, and the real Out Back.
- Incredible landscapes, all our trips include unique and favoured places, mostly well hidden off track.
- Included on one of our longer trips is Mount Augustus. Located 320 km east of Carnarvon, Mount Augustus is the largest monolith in the world. It is 2.5 times larger than Uluru (Ayers Rock) standing 858 m above the surrounding plain and 1105 metres above sea level. Yes you may climb it too!
WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO, HOW WE DO IT.
We are a family company. Bill, my brother and I have come to maturity down different pathways. Me? I’m Harry. Bill and I both milked cows on our family's dairy farm in the SW of WA. We both headed off in our late teens.
What we do now is give you the benefit of our collective years of wandering around the backtracks of WA. We know where those elusive special flowers hide. We have a wild flower season in WA that starts [ according to rains and temperatures, remember nature rules ] many miles north of Perth in early August and slowly moves southwards with the seasonal changes, into early December. The eastern boundary is even more hard to forecast and is a jagged line dictated, again, by winter rains. We do not predict ahead too much, we rely on local contacts, which are very reliable by the day. From this flexibility, it means we take you to the best of what is out and thriving in each sector, for the time of year. Added into the flower hunt are local features, creeks, gorges, hill tops, whatever the area has that is memorable and yes photogenic.
The How. We have two very comfortable, air conditioned vehicles. Fully serviced and maintained. No sore backs or stiff shoulders from bad seating. We do not do marathon drives. Our expectation is that at the end of the day you have done around 3-4 hours of broken shift drives, walked around exploring and finding special individual flowers such as spider or donkey orchids, enjoyed food and hot drinks or cold, had a chair to just sit and veg out, if that’s what you want to do on a break. Hey, lets be happy and full of joy. You will experience something very, very, special that replenishes your inner spiritual Idd. Relax and let the spell of the red dirt and big open country in the north, or the magnificent Karri forests and massive ferns of the south, or our rugged coast line that wrecked so many Dutch and French explorers, weave its spell. It’s a great experience we offer and we work at caring and sharing, with, as well as for you. Oh! and we never cancel an advertised trip, once we have even just a single booking. “No worries mate”.
