WILDFLOWERS AND LOCATIONS
Chapman River Regional Park
In the heart of Geraldton lies a place of significant value, the Chapman River Regional Park, detailing the beauty of native flowering plants, birds and animal life framed by sweeping vistas of the Moresby Range and out across the Indian Ocean. The river follows the Geraldton Fault where Greenough sandstone meets Tamaia limestone resulting in over 300 species of native plants, some of which occur nowhere else. Walk or cycle, take a picnic or kayak from the pontoon of Kempton Street.
Mills Point Lookout
Only 7kms east of the North West Coastal Highway on the Chapman Valley Road, the Mills Point Lookout offers spectacular views across the Chapman Valley to the east and Geraldton to the west. An abundance of wildflower species come to life during the season including Dampiera, Grevillea pinaster, Hibbertia and Melalueca.
