Springtime brings a whole new burst of colour to our National Parks, parks and gardens and home gardens, with wildflowers and tree blossoms bursting out in colourful flowers and heady scents. It also brings out the wildlife on the hunt for food, sometimes with spring babies in tow.
With above average rainfall in some parts of inland and southern Australia this winter it will at least have one major benefit for travellers and that is the wildflower season should be spectacular.
Australia is such a land of contrasts with vivid blue and green seas lapping at paper white sandy beaches, through to rough red dirt interiors and rugged cliffs and escarpments, not to forget lush, green, tropical rainforests and towering forests. A surprising element in all of the different landscapes are our wildflowers and native trees that burst into life come spring.
