Welcome to Wongan Hills
With the first wheat crop budding forth here in 1905, unassuming little Wongan Hills isn't as old as many towns in WA's wheat-belt. But with its gently undulating countryside, hiking trails and myriad verticordias (aka featherflowers), it makes a pleasant change from the flatter farming towns to the south. In fact, the wildflowers here are extremely diverse: more than 1400 species, with 24 found only around Wongan Hills. Heading north, the Wildflower Way proper begins: drive towards Dalwallinu and into the blooms.
