"Wildflowers of the Stirling Range" is a Department of Conservation and Land Management publication that is available at ABC Shops in WA.
It describes more than 30 wildflower species including their habitat, distribution and distinctive features with photos.
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.
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.
