Whether you’re surrounding yourself with carpets of colourful flowers, spotting rare orchids, or just enjoying the local native flowers, it’s a great way to immerse yourself in nature and help your spirits soar.
Parks Victoria’s Environmental Scientist – Flora, Marie Keatley says: “In Victoria we are lucky to have many different habitats that support a huge variety of wildflowers. Hidden gems and places that may not appear that interesting in other months can be completely transformed during spring. This includes some of our important grasslands that are often critical habitat to rare and threatened plants and animals.
“I encourage everyone to take a picnic or go for a walk in our parks this spring and enjoy the stunning range of wildflower colours, shapes and scents on offer. This is also a wonderful time to see many different birds out enjoying the nectar from the flowers.”
