Two scenic and varied drives that start 34km east of Perth and are centred on the Gidgegannup village are recommended.
Peak viewing season for wildflowers is August – November commencing with the flowering of the yellow Wattles and Hibbertia and the distinctive rich blue Leschenaultia.
The drive passes through mixed Marri, Jarrah, Powderbark and Wandoo woodlands and provides views to countryside supporting a range of agricultural activities such as horse studs, cattle, sheep, goats (which produce a nationally recognised cheese), emus, alpacas and orchards of olives, peacans and other nuts.
En route you will have the opportunity to stop for a walk or a picnic (see: Walk Trails) and visit Gidgegannup Village (see: Gidge Townsite Map).
