Wildflowers & Wildlife
Corrigin Nature Reserve
At 1200 ha in size, the Corrigin Nature Reserve is one of the largest and most important areas of remnant vegetation in the central Wheatbelt. The Scenic Lookout and Wildflower Drive are located in the Nature Reserve, located 5km west of the townsite on Brookton Hwy heading to Perth (signposted) and is one of the best locations to seek out wonderful wildflowers and native vegetation, however you will also be lucky enough to see them in the road verges and reserves throughout the whole shire.
Corrigin Wildflower Drive
Like most rural areas, Corrigin experiences some beautiful sights during the wildflower season, which is usually in September / October every year. The Corrigin Wildflower Drive starts opposite the Dog Cemetery, 5km west on the Brookton Highway and takes you on a well maintained gravel track to the Scenic Lookout, which overlooks the townsite and wheatbins. Variety is the keynote as the plants change with soils through woodlands, thickets and shrub land. For further information view the Corrigin Wildflower Drive brochure or call into the Corrigin Community Resource Centre at 55 Larke Crescent, Corrigin.
Just some of the unique wildflowers and wildlife that can be seen in Corrigin.
Located 20kms from town, Gorge Rock is a natural rock pool which was once the local swimming hole (before the Olympic pool was constructed in town). A walk to the top offers spectacular panoramic views of the Corrigin countryside and the area provides a good rest stop for travellers with parking and picnic facilities. Many native animals and birds inhabit the surrounding natural bushland.
A small townsite within the Corrigin Shire, Bullaring has the Dorothy Martin Wildflower Garden.
