Welcome....

South west Australia is famous for its huge numbers of wild flower species including large numbers of endemics. If the rainfall is right in late Winter and Spring, which lasts roughly from August to November, the bush and desert can be carpeted in acres of blooms so spectacular that wild flower tourism has become a regular feature of the area. These are the photos from several visits mostly to Western Australia in 2007, 2012, 2013 and 2015. In 2015 some plants from Eastern Australia were photographed near Sydney in Eastern Australia.

Currently 418 photos of plants found in Australia have been published. There are also a few photos of plants which also grow in the British Isles but these are often nuisance aliens in Australia. Many more alien species found in Australia come from South Africa or the Mediterranean countries.

The extensive indexing of the site is still available via the main site, but the Australian A to Z index may be the most useful.

Photographs on the site have a resolution of 72 dpi which is only suitable for web use. If you ask for permission to use a photograph the answer will invariably be yes. There are no charges but please ask first. Please read the Contact me page for more details.

A screen resolution typical late of the 1990s (800 x 600) is not recommended because many images are a fixed size and may be displaced so both horizontal and vertical scrolling will be necessary. Some of the newer pages (created in 2007 or later) have thumbnails which will lead to enlarged images with a height of 700 px. These enlarged images are best viewed at 1280 x 1024 or higher resolution.

If you want to see the images on this page expanded (also see butterfly and highslide indexes) then you must have scripts enabled in your web browser. The code for this is open source and is provided by Torstein H√łnsi at Highslide JS.
