    Bush code of ethics

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Stay on established paths.

    Use only fuel stoves at bush campsites.

    Where there are no toilets, bury toilet waste more than 150mm deep and at least 100m from any water supply.

    Clean, crush and carry out all rubbish.

    Respect private property by not straying onto land adjacent to the National Park.

    Be courteous to other track users and be prepared to assist if required.

    Enjoy the wildflowers but don't pick them.

    Favorite thing: The Stirling Range Retreat is home to many families of possums and campers are sometimes kept awake at night by their nocturnal activities.

    Possums are naturally inquisitive so don't leave anything outside during the night.

    Especially food!

    Wildflowers of the Stirling Range

    by robertgaz Updated Dec 10, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Stirling Range National Park is a botanists delight with 384 genera and 1,517 species that are found here.

    About 87 plant species in the park are found nowhere else in the world.

    Although the South West of WA experiences a Mediterranean climate, the Stirling Range has more extreme temperatures including occassional snow in winter.

    There are 27 rare or endangered flower species in the park so please treat the area with respect by not picking any flowers.

    Fondest memory: The best time for seeing wildflowers is during spring, starting about September with some species flowering well into the summer months too.
