“Tracks, Trails & Tractors”
Wongan Hills is approximately 2 hours drive North East from Perth.
The name Wongan Hills translate from the Aboriginal Wongan Katta or “Whispering Hills”, referring to the wind whispering through the greenstone laterite hills which rise just North-West of the townsite. These hills are the largest single area of natural vegetation remaining in the northern wheatbelt.
Surveyor, General JS Roe and his exploration party were the first Europeans to visit these hills, in November 1836. Wongan Hills is a modern, progressive town due to the prosperity of farming.
“It’s A Wildflower Adventure”
Wongan Hills flora is extremely diverse with more than 1400 species of flowering plants. Of greater importance is that 24 of these species are unique to the Wongan Hills.
The concentration of wildflowers in Wongan Hills is equal to Mount Lesueur National Park, Stirling Range National Park and Fitzgerald Nation Park. There are numerous species of priority flora.
